Leipzig, Germany/Herndon, VA — First seen as a concept car at the Frankfurt International Auto Show in 2011, the production version of the Beetle Fender Edition makes its world debut at the Leipzig International Auto Show. Volkswagen’s iconic coupe is not only fitted with the outstanding premium Fender© sound system, but also visually demonstrates its affiliation with the American musical icon...
Does it come with a Fender Guitar? (or coupon to get one)
I still have the First Act Guitar that I got with my 2007 GTI. One of these days I'll learn how to play it.
2012 XC90 R-Design | Ice White | 20" Cratus wheels | RSE
2013 S60 T5 AWD | stock for now
2013 JKU Sahara | Rock Lobster | 3.73 rear | DualTop Group | Leather w/ heat | 430N with NAV-TV
This is the best VWOA can come up with. give me a break
In my opinion this edition will bomb big time!!! whatever happened to the "K2" edition or the "Pirelli" edition. Now that was cool i think. I know everyone has there own opinion. but guitar and cars dont go together. Its like ice cream and ketcup!!! I mean seriously!!!

In the case of the K2 Golf and the Jetta Trek they installed a roof rack, a pair of skis or a bicycle with the appropriate stickers and called it a lifestyle. This (in my humble opinion) is something that took a bit more forethought and was done with a vehicle that is at the beginning of the product cycle rather than being at the end of a product run to increase sales without too much additional money towards R&D.
I'm positive and grateful for the Golf R which is just about the only thing VW has offered that I actually asked for! I'm positive about VW trying to compensate for the cheapening of thier products as of lately. I'd be grateful if VW offered a Beetle TDI with an independent rear suspension and fog lamps. I'd be grateful if VW finally offered a Tiguan TDI. I see no need to be grateful for something I don't want, did not ask for, and do not need! The mixing up I would like to see seems not likely to come. I'd love to show VW some gratitude but I can't seem to find anything to be greatful for!
European car should have european band
For instance... The Beatles.
Beatles Edition Beetle... anyone get what im saying?
anyone smelling what im stepping in?
tracking like a VCR?
and for a guitar, it should come with a Les Paul or a Gretch.
You gotta be the worst bot ever. None of that made sense. Vwvortex you are failing at keeping the spam down.
LOL @ all of the negative responses from desk-jockies not in the automotive segment at all. Pretty funny that they pretend to know what they are talking about. OMG cross-marketing, wait, you think that is bad? lol.
Anyway, that dash treatment is fantastic. Very beautiful.

i cant wait to get an At&t Walmart Edition new beetle......
vw stepped out and asked fender to add some things to a vw beetle
owners buy the car because they know its a special edition and probally like jimi hendrix playing fenders
whats not to make sense?

how does putting fender audio in a vehicle compensate for anything? and how exactly has volkswagen cheapened their products? ive been working for volkswagen and havent noticed such attempts? vw is one of the largest companies in the entire world, and youre gonna tell me that youre "positive" that they are trying to compensate for something that is non existant? you are very ignorant to anything that goes on in the automotive industry obviously. how does 30 straight months of increase in sales need any kind of explanation? options on cars are all things that people do not need! hence be the name "option". im sorry that volkswagen didnt call you to make sure that it was ok if they made a fender edition beetle. i guess thats why they make beetle without fender. eh?

What I assert is that there is precious little that's special in a Fender Audio Edition Beetle. See how the words are different. Now that we have what I think is a common understanding of what is being criticized, lets explain further. In one sentence, these isn't a single thing new in the Fender Edition Edition (besides the dash trim) that you can not get out of the VW parts bin before the car was offered.
The Fender Edition probably isn't 'bad' because some Jennifer will see it and decide that she's got to have it. She'll be pleased that she has something 'special' and the marketing bonanza moves on to the next stripes, decals, and lettering campaign. Same parts, new decals and stickers.
