      Was wondering if anyone experiences a slight buzz of short duration during acceleration from a stop in first and second gear. From what I can tell it may be heat shielding around center muffler or the center muffler mounting bracket. This happens on both my beetles. Thanks!

      yeah! I thought it was the gauge pod, but then it seemed to be coming from behind the vents and when i turn off climatic there is less buzzing; it only happens during the initial part of the acceleration. Then once you get going it moves on to the rattling seat and trunk
