FUN Bug no problems

2002 Volkswagen New Beetle Turbo S 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I bought the 2002 Beetle Turbo S used with over 30,000 miles on it. I have about 42,000 on it now. Heard about realiability issues but have had none so far. Fun car to drive, sporty, and fast. Comfort is a little weak for 6'1" guy but overall not bad. I have added a sub to stock Monsoon radio and it sounds way better.
Blast to go fast. I find myself doing 80 mph way to easy and the car feels slow when you are at 65. Love the stickshift and interior. Pop up spoiler, cup style front end, and wide wheels/tires.
Clutch s/b crisper. Better sound insulation would help with wind noise. Otherwise, it is perfect.
