Finally seeing them around J-ville! I saw a Platinum Gray Turbo on the west side. Unfortunately, I saw a white 2.5 being fished out of a lake in my sisters neighborhood. Guy fell asleep at the wheel and it took a drink.

have 'lower than U.S. profile' rear headrests in a plain black leatherette (synthetic leather)
that U.S. owners could purchase? The 'big balloon' rear headrests here in the U.S. really do
hinder vision out the rear hatch glass area.
on your last leave of absence. It's good to know you're back to split the duties with 'Moody'.
She tends to go ballistic when everything piles up on her and now she can go into a semi-
relaxed mode with your return to the trenches. Welcome home, Katie !
VW kept giving you the 'run-a-round', fearing one of your famous 'mood swing' eruptions coming
to the surface. I'm sure everyone is forever thankful that VW finally got you the car you wanted.
problem with the Black Vienna Leather would be cost if they are real leather and not
synthetic. If possible, can you post a part number, dealer email address, and price?
Some on this side of 'the pond' would be interested I'm sure.
My sightings are up to 5, not counting those for sale on dealership lots. I was surprised to see one with just 180 miles on an independent lot, a Saturn Yellow 2.5 auto for $20,495.
As of March 31, 10,299 21st Century Beetles have been sold in the US, so they're out there. Just not where I live....I may have to drive 100 miles over to Minneapolis just so I can see more.

Saw my first one on the road since I brought mine home!
A red one, no sunroof, couldn't tell if it was a Turbo or 2.5... We waved to each other.
This brings my total to 3 since the launch.

1964 &1968 Ghias. 2003, 2007, 2009, and FINALLY 2012 Beetles!
I saw one for the first time two weeks ago in Watertown, MA. It was Toffee Brown, and since it was dark out and I only saw it from the front, I couldn't tell which trim it was.
My Passat wagon is 10 years old and getting ready to retire, so I'm hoping to test-drive a Beetle very soon! I'm considering the Beetle, SportWagen, or Gulf 4-door.
Saw another red one on Sunday in Raleigh. I think that makes number 4 on the road that I've seen.
Saw a yellow and a white one the past couple days. The white one stood out and after looking at it closer, noticed it had a beige leather interior and an aftermarket sunroof (like on the GTIs) I noticed they had also taken off the rear headrests haha. Not sure if they did the beige aftermarket or if it came like that. It was a 2.5 too, I thought they only came with the leatherette
