I went back to school and needed a
more economical car, so I traded my
2000 323i sport/premium for a 2002
Platnum Grey New Beetle GLS TDI. I
love to low end grunt in the city. I
am shocked with the amazing fule
mileage. With the BMW I had to fill
up every 6 days or so, with the VW I
fill up about every 3 weeks. I just
had it chipped with no degredation of
mileage and GOBS of Torque!
Height adjustable seats are great as
well as the egronomics. This is truly
the easiest manual car to drive
because of the low end torque. This
car is also all about style.
Mirrors have blind spots. Glove box
is tall but shallow.
