      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.

      Did gators nibble the driver?

      I saw a white 2.5 today, raising my total to 6 in 6 months.

      Hmmm.... wonder if the Beetles float as good as the old air-cooled ones.

      Hahahaha...This one did not fair so well. It was upside down. On a good note, he is safe and Gator free.

      'Moody's' been a 'wild woman' since getting her Denim Blue 'Bug'. Wouldn't surprise me to
      find out she took it out for an extended ride and wound up going from California to Texas.
      She is a 'spur of the moment' gal !

      Saw a yellow one with black racing stripes on Saturday. My parents saw the same one this weekend so it must be in the Medina, OH area.

      Dmac ! Am curious to know if either the 2012 Beetle or other models available in the U.K.
      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.

      'Moody Lucy' has been 'holding the fort' on behalf of female VW enthusiasts since you went
      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 !

      I thought that maybe you were all tuckered out from trying to get your 'frozen' doors
      open last winter and needed time before re-entering the 'World of VWVortex' again.

      Good question, Ron! I need to know who I can get to export them for me!

      With all due respect, your students, critters, and husband are said to have 'run for the hills' when
      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.

      I'm waiting for a new world record for the amount of people 'stuffed' in the 2012 Beetle.
      Maybe they can schedule it in Brooklyn's famous 'Coney Island' when they have the 'world's
      hot dog eating contest'.

      The 'Sport' version I had with the Black Vienna Leather had rear headrests , whether they are different to the US ones , Im not sure , I didn't find rear visibility a problem while I had the car though!

      If you didn't find visability a problem, you definitely had the non-balloon ones. The only
      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.

      I witnessed a NB chasing a PlatGrey B12 2.5L Sunday afternoon. I must declare... that w/o the spoiler the B12 has one PhatAss.

      7 Beetles in 6 months.

    22. 04-22-2012 08:48 AM #197
      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.

      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 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

    33. 05-03-2012 06:33 PM #208
      One more... a yellow 2.5L

      9 in 7 months

      Three on the road thus far.
