    Thread: European delivery

    1. 12-16-2011 01:34 AM #1
      Just curious....

      Does VW have European delivery for the Beetle?

      Please don't say... "Mexican delivery"

      Considering that the Beetle is built in Mexico for the US, it wouldn't make sense to have European Delivery. That said, VW doesn't have European delivery for any of its cars.

      Yes - depending upon how one defines "delivery."

      VW doesn't have a formal euro delivery program like Porsche (for example), however you can arrange European delivery through your dealer if you so desire. That being said, it will only apply to vehicles actually built in Europe (as you already mentioned).
      I did a euro delivery of a brand new Canadian spec Jetta back in 1992, of course I was stationed in Germany at the time....

      It wouldn't be so hard for VW to ship the vehicle to Wolfsburg along with those slotted for the Euro market. You would simply fly to Frankfurt and pick up your bug at Wolfsburg... then spend a gatrillion Euros on VW accessories. That would make VW very happy, no?

      Or VW could buy a small village somewhere outside of the Puebla plant. Turn it into a tourist magnet with a little castle, chalets, and a few beer gardens serving Bavarian beers and sausages. Build a track around the village with no speed limit and tell buyers that the Beetle is engineered for light speed. I see a beeline already!!!

      Is VW a charity or something? Though some fake-ass village in Mexico would probably be a more appealing destination than Wolfsburg. Even the ICE doesn't want to stop there.

      If VW built a fake-ass village outside of Puebla, US VW fans will be very charitable.

      We love fake-asses, fake boobies, fake lips... so why not a fake village.

      In WWII, leading up to the Normandy invasion, the allies wanted the Germans to think we
      would be landing at the Port of Calais and not Normandy so they set up these 'blow up'
      balloon-like armored vehicles that looked like the real thing, which would be then reported
      back to the German high command who concluded that Calais would be where they needed
      to amass their resources. History tends to repeat itself and I fully believe that the only six-
      speed Turbo Beetles we will receive are going to be a FAKE 'blow up' balloon-like version
      also. NO REAL SIX-SPEED TURBO'S WERE EVER EVEN INTENDED TO BE MADE !
