      I just received word from the dealer that the exact beetle we're looking for arrived, white with nav and red/black seats and the gauge pod! I'll test drive it tomorrow and post pics. Apparently it's been on order for four months

      Yep - my dealer has literally doubled his inventory this past week. It's all becoming real.

      So far all the turbos that have come into my dealership in the past couple weeks have all had the gauges (jealous) and I've seen LEDs, Sunroofs, and Black/Red Interior...so looks like all the issues are fixed.

      It is beautiful!! The dual interior is very sharp! Is it an automatic? The picture is not very clear, but it looks like the wheels are 18" and yet the the headlights are xenon. another thing I noticed was that the inside has the white panels...which is another deviation from what you could order on the vw.com website. I believe all turbos came with the black dashbords, but I definitely prefer the color inside to match the outside like the 2.5L. Very nice!

      Those are from my salesperson, I'll take better photos this evening. The Wheels are the 19", headlights are xenon and the white is shipping wrap, the actual interior is going to be black as you've suspected. I'll be going through OEMPlus in the future to swap white pieces on the interior . And yes, the red/black interior is incredible and well worth the wait .

      I don't think the interior is white. It looks to me like that is the white tape they cover the commonly damaged parts prior to delivery. If you look on the dash above the steering wheel you can see the carbon fiber look dash that the Turbos all have.

      It's about damn time!!!

      Now I'm waiting for my combo to at least get a vin number. TDI DSG SSN. Regional representative thinks I should have a vin number by July 1, 2012 and take delivery in September. I was really hoping to pick up my car in June so I could take her on a couple road trips but I guess I can deal with waiting a couple more months... le sigh.

      DSG with flappy bits behind the wheel. Dealer offered 4k off MSRP but we ordered the exact one we want (same but win sunroof), looking forward to picking it up in 2-4 months. I honestly can't get over how well put together The Beetle feels, having owned everything from the first New Beetle in '98 to the R32 I've got to say this Beetle takes the cake when it comes to ridiculously well designed interior, retro exterior with enough masculine touches a non 'family' man wouldn't mind driving it, and driver involvement beyond that of the '07 GTI in my garage. Very Very Very impressive package and quite a steal at 27k fully loaded, or the 31.4k MSRP we'll be paying. :thumb up: More pix tonight if I can get away from training new hires.

      LEDs



      boot



      dash with MFD, very happy to have directions in the dash cluster like on the R and GTI with nav



      nav, same as the GTI. it's no RNS-510 but it's noticeably snappier



      gimmicky but fun light up speaker housing



      the main selling point



      not an afterthought like in the jetta



      pointless but fun



      easily my favorite wheels on the new beetle

      Look what's at my local dealer. With the exception of the transmission (DSG) and the missing gauges this is just about my dream Beetle:
