      Ya know what would be super? If my Beetle would stop unlocking and locking itself and if the dealer would replace my 5x soaked interior with one that doesn't smell like gym socks... I'm not even going to complain that they haven't fixed the upsy downsy yet.

      Ok Ok back on topic. Can't wait for details of this project.

      Beetle donor car arrived today. Six-speed manual, no sunroof, turbo in Platinum Grey. Car is down at APR along with the Golf R donor (former autoshow crusher car that VW had written off already) that will supply the AWD system and various support pieces.

      I'm just posting up a few teaser bits here in the Beetle forum till this more formally kicks off early next week. We'll be posting regular updates in this thread for everyone.

      500HP and AWD should make this a fun Beetle.

      Might rekindle VW's thoughts about actually making an AWD Turbo Beetle.

      This could be the most anticipated event since sliced bread was first introduced to the
      masses. For those unfamiliar with the origin of sliced bread, note that in 1732 a duel
      developed in a country inn over the affections of a pretty wench who answered to the
      name Ba-bie. During the duel of swords, one of the combatants accidently slammed his
      sword onto the top of a nearby table where a loaf of bread was resting and for the first
      time known to man, a slice of bread was born. The man sitting at the table called out
      to the man by name, saying 'LeSlice, do it again !' Pierre LeSlice did do it again and now
      with two slices before him, the seated man called out to the bar keeper for some salted
      meat. He then placed the meat between the two slices of bread. The name of this man,
      it turns out, was The Earl of Sandwich and he was the inventor of the prepared food that
      bear's his name.

      I've hear rumors that NASA wants to use it as a booster for one of their upcoming
      rockets and the only problem is that all their astronauts are afraid to pilot it due to
      the scary power levels planned for it.
