      I promised my wife I would color match hers if I got her a Turbo. I look forward to how nice the interior will look.

      THREE Catalytic converters!!!! Oh my! I just cut the converter off my 02 TDI Beetle and what a big difference in power that made!

      Wonder if we can do the ventdectomy on this model and get the extra 2 gallons of fuel capacity like we did in the New Beetles?

      I hate the TDI badge, so plain!

      I wish the TDI came with the independent rear suspension. I hate the ride of the torsion beam suspension, especially going over train tracks or any washboard.
      Keep it German.

      If this is the exact same motor and setup as the MKVI Golf, you can do a DPF delete ($800-1000 for the downpipe) and then get a tune. Malone comes to mind for the DPF delete.

      Does the Beetle really have that much drag? I wonder if lowering the Beetle would lower the CoD.
