We have raised our families on old and new Beetles. We have owned a 1966, 1972, 1979, a 1968 Ghia, along with a 1999 New Beetle, tomoatoe red hardtop. We have always wanted a convertible and finally found the opportunity to own one this year. This new salsa red with tan interior and top is our "dream come true Beetle." It is fun to drive with the roof up or down. The power roof is sweeeeeet. The leather interior is nice and comfortable. The dash is ergonomically freindly. The Beetle sound system has a very quality sound. We have the 17" tires and wheels and I think the ride is compromised with this combination. Our Beetle always draws comments and waves when cruising the highway.
I really like the exterior design, power roof, and sound system. The tan roof/interior is a very nice combination with the salsa red exterior. The rain sensor windsheild wipers are also nice. Finally, we love the way the New Beetle smiles at you from the front or rear.
I would enjoy radio controls on the stering wheel. Power seats would be a nice addition, also.
