      I could not agree more, Ronald. For, what you describe is exactly what attracted me to the Beetle.

      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.

      According to JC@DouglasVW (a vwvortex banner advertiser) the 18x8 twisters are $435.60 each. That may not be MSRP as he tends to discount.

      Ah... you're not a pro yet!!!

      It's a 2.5L with upgraded wheels, not a turbo.

      Look at the mirror caps. They are red, not black.

      I've been stopped quite a few times since I got my Beetle two weeks ago. All but one of them have been male. They all seem to like the look of the car.

      Nothing slips by the 'Cadenza' man ! It's kind of scary, for I believe everything he see's and learn's
      about for the first time is absorbed into his memory........forever !

      Just saw my first '12 Beetle on the road today. Denim blue I believe. On Long Island, heading East on the Northern Parkway right before the split to the Meadowbrook. A little before 7 pm. Wonder if it was anyone on here?

      2012 Beetle?
      12-28-2011 01:41 AM #64
      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...

      ...zero.

      The problem could very well have to do with many Beetles being fitted with a 'Klingon-like'
      cloaking device. It's a pricey option but has its advantages....I'm sure. Don't know what
      they might be but I'm sure Bill from Utah can tell us what they are.

      I've seen only 2 Beetles since the first week of October. There are 4 dealers within 20 miles...

      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.
