      Don't know how to go about contacting a VW dealership in Juarez (close to El Paso, Tx.)
      concerning the purchase of rear headrests but was able to find out that their Beetle Sport
      model has Euro version rear headrests in black leatherette. Perhaps someone could contact
      them in Spanish and find out part number and USD cost information for those of you who
      want to replace the large leatherette 'balloons' perched on the backrest of your rear seats.

      Plain fact of the matter is that it won't be long before our Moody Lucy reaches the
      boiling point over her 'vision impaired' rear-mounted 'balloons' and goes volcanic.
      Hopefully this information will come in time before ''The Mood Woman's' patience
      reaches its end.

      There's a VW site for Euro Car Juarez that has the phone number (656)-687-16-09 TO 15.
      Might be a good starting point.

      Might be a good starting point.
      The dealership is now called Euro Vehículos de Ciudad Juárez. It is located on Blvd. Manuel Gómez Morín, just across from the Country Club (Club Campestre). The street is a major artery, and exits from Hwy 45 in Ciudad Juárez. http://www.vw-eurovehiculos.com.mx/index.php

      Over the years I have bought parts from the dealership on many occasions. But I have not gone into Ciudad Juárez for the past 3 years, due to the rampant violence. So I cannot swear that the dealership is as good as it used to be.

      There should be a person or two that can speak English at the dealership (although I have never tried to speak English there). The first order of business is to talk to the Parts Department (Departamento de Refacciones), then try to describe the headrest. The phone call initially rings to the dealership phone operator.

      Getting merchandise shipped from México is complicated. It sometimes requires a Customs Broker. It is easier to purchase the parts in person, and then hand-carry them across the border. You will have to declare them at US Customs.

      It might be easier yet to contact one of the importers such as ECS Tuning or OEM Plus, and see if they can get the parts.
