beetle problems are rear visibility, slow (0 -60 is 11 seconds) parking is tough because the front and back ends are huge compared to driving position. reliability should be ok engine wise as it is essentially the old golf.

convertible looks fun although visibility is even worse.

Doesnt sound TOO out of the ordinary, my mate has the 02 plate and although he picked it up in 03 for around £45k you can pick them up these days for under £10k Sad beast of a car though, proper luxury!

yeah i know about the rear view and can understand the reasoning for that, but why the fuck would you want or need it on the wing mirrors? Puzzled
whoever invented that has got far to much time on they hands.
