already have my chrome Talladega ones to replace them with, so I'm going to put them up
for '1/2' price to anyone one wants them. They'll have about 5 miles on them, in addition to
the 15 or so miles on them from the port, and they will fit 'snuggly' in the same two cushioned
boxes my Talladega wheels arrived in so as to guarantee a protected shipment. P.S. - They
decided to use the Talladega wheel style on the new Golf R but I believe they are shiny
aluminum whereas mine will be chrome plated with clear-coat protection from the elements.

2012 Beetle 2.0 TSI/DSG White Launch Edition
2012 A3 2.0 TDI/DSG White S-Line Premium
Okay, I just drove from San Francisco south, through San Jose, down to Santa Barbara, then through L.A. all the way to Palm Springs. I kept a careful count of how many 2012 Beetles I saw as I drove through the most populace, auto intensive state in the union, and I counted...
Saw my second one on the road Monday I believe. Denim blue. Looks sharp.
Drove by a bunch of dealers in my travels the last 2 weeks. Seen a few on lots, but not a ton.
I'm not surprised I'm not seeing many. Production isn't really all that high from what I understand so its not like the dealers have the same number of Beetles on the lots as they do Jettas or Golfs, etc. Less to selll = less on the roads.
Was coming south on Highway 101 in Ventura in my work truck, noticed in my rearview mirror a black Beetle. It was a Black Turbo Launch Edition like mine. Had paper plate from Barber VW the dealership in Ventura. Looks like VW is delivering non preorder Black Turbo Launch Editions to the dealers. My dealer now has two of them.
