2012 Volkswagen Beetle: Re-upping

February 6, 2013

2012 Volkswagen Beetle

Among the modern new car features that I can't live without, satellite radio ranks high on the list. I love all kinds of music and hate commercials and yammering, self-absorbed DJs, so satellite radio is up there with heated seats and Bluetooth in my book. Such is my disdain for standard radio that when I drive my personal car ('98 Mustang Cobra) the stock system is usually rocking a CD (remember those?)

So when our Beetle's Sirius subscription recently expired, I sent a reminder to keeper of the keys Mike Schmidt to re-up. He did in short order and once again the Beetle is bouncing to E Street, Classic Rewind, 1st Wave and Soul Town. The enjoyment sat radio adds to the daily grind and occasional road trip more than justifies its cost, which on a weekly basis is about equal to a fancy coffee shop beverage.
