    Thread: What did you do to your Beetle today?

      Ordered a front license plate bracket from Sly Brackets as I don’t want to drill into the front bumper of our new 2019 convertible. It wasn’t cheap but my wife didn’t like the idea of the front plate being off center using a bracket that uses the tow hook, and I didn’t like the idea of drilling into the bumper. It’s the SEL Final Edition trim line.

      Love the yellow too.
      Sorry, but my son got these for me. I'm not exactly sure where he got them from.

      Traded in my wife's 2017 Silk Blue for one of the few remaining 2019 white convertibles. I kinda liked the uniqueness of the Silk Blue and tan top with the bronze wheels, though. The new one is gonna need some new wheels for it after winter, though! This is her 3rd Beetle convertible in a row, so you could say she's a fan.

      Got some cute little decals that go in each outside mirror. They say.....OBJECTS IN MIRROR ARE LOSING.

      I thought they were kinda cute.

      Also did some matching of inlet hoses. Got a couple more ECS tuning 3" black silicone hoses, so they all match.

      Other then that, car's just sitting inside, nice and toasty, while the weather is just sucky.

      Haven't put 10 miles on car in a month.

      Swapped from my winter tires (Bridgestone Blizzak WS80s on 17 inch Heritage wheels) to my all seasons (Continental ExtremeContace DWS06s on the factory 18 inch Twister wheels) since the weather forecast has been and remains to be in the 50s.
      Honestly forgot how good this thing corners with these tires...

      Ive tried ALL sorts of various waxs/polishes, etc.
      I think/believe I've found one that actually does/performs/works great. (and looks great too).
      NO, Im not being paid for this...…..
      The Last Coat. I did a bunch of research. I finally bit the bullet, and purchased some.
      Works fantastic!!! I did all the prep stuff. (finally clay bar'd the entire car). (didn't need it...……….guess I keep it too clean/polished). But I digress.
      The wax went on easy as hell. Came off easy hell. And, talk about shine. HOLY MOLY! Works/looks fantastic!!!!

      Then, yesterday,, (it was nice out, finally), I drove car to only town around here that has 93 octane fuel. (only had a couple gallons left in tank, so it was good).
      Filled up the tank. Threw in a can of seafoam. (just because). Switched the APR tune to the 93 chipped setting, and went out and burned off a BUNCH of tire.
      Gawd I miss that! Only had her up to around 120 a couple of times. (back roads).
      Cant wait for the weather to get REALLY nice, so I can swap on the sticky tires, turn the tune up to the 100+ octane, switch on the water/meth system, and REALLY have some fun!!!

      2019 Beetle SE (black)
      Yesterday 06:55 AM #2862

      Blacked out all the chrome at the window line.
      On the flip side I have experimented with the wheel line as well, but at the moment I like how that piece of chrome ties in the wheels.

      {
      I might return later with an image that is not shooting back into the sun.
      I haven't been going out much, and this was taken on a food run.

      }
