hello from New Beetle owner

Postby AKRadar on Oct Mon 26, 2009 7:12 pm

Well, Just wanting to stop in and intorduce myself. I was intorduced to the form by my co-worker. I just recently purchased a used 2000 New beetle from a private owner. So far this unique Bananna yellow beetle appears to be the only beetle with this shade of yellow in Missoula. :mrgreen: Truly unique. Anyhow, I am slowly learning more about this car and so far am loving this VW. For my first VW, and only having it for a few months, I am really looking forward to owning this car. So far, my first project is to fix the check engine light that insists on bugging me. At least during the next decent outdoor warm spell, I can replace the vacuum lines that are causing the CEL. I thank you for reading my ramblings, and thank you for this useful fourm.

Thanks from

Yes it was, and so far, the wife and I are really enjoying the car. I look forward to the adventures it will take us to!
