Finally saw another one! White turbo w/ sunroof. I think that makes 4 TOTAL!
Also saw a carrier with at least 2 beetles heading up from Puebla!
In February the wife ordered a white Beetle with a sunroof and beige interior. Still waiting. However, since then we've been looking for 2012 Beetles every time we are on the road and we've only seen one. And that one appeared to be out for a test drive because we live only a mile or two from Fox Valley VW in the western suburbs of Chicago.
I saw 4 in 3 days when I was in Ashevillle a few weeks ago. I think that makes 7 or 8 total that I've seen driving around, not counting the couple I saw at SoWo.
Saw a denim blue one yesterday and a black turbo on the way to school today. I've been getting a lot of compliments/questions lately too. Like yesterday someone asked while I was getting gas what kind of mileage it got, then asked if it was a diesel, I said no it's the turbo, then he asked if it was the turbo diesel...Lol. I had just said it wasn't a diesel.
Saw three more this week! White 2.5, platinum turbo, and a red.
Saw a Denim Blue with a sunroof at the dealer. Retro wheels, so I'm assuming it doesn't have the sound and nav. They have several Beetles on the lot- 2.5 and turbo!
1964 &1968 Ghias. 2003, 2007, 2009, and FINALLY 2012 Beetles!
I have seen more Beetles on the road in the past week than in the past month and a half. My wife and I saw about 10 or so including 2 turbos, a turbo with sunroof, a basic with sunroof and the rest all basic. We have been more aware of them as we are going to check out the TDI when it arrives. Supposedly they are due in August and there is a group of about 50 or so beetles at the port that seem to be secluded from the rest, maybe they are the TDI's. Also, the local dealers seem to be getting more of the Beetles in stock.
(Edit) The secluded Beetles are facing the road so I can't see if there is any TDI badging on the rear deck. They do have special wheels but they may be turbos, not sure.
