My VW New Beetles

First Sight

It was 1994 as a concept car attracts my attention. Now I know that there were another four years until it became reality, but it was love at first sight ;-) The photo on the left is an official press photo of VW.

I was very surprised as I saw the Concept 1 Convertible in 1995 within a local industrial exhibition. It was really there, original, itself. I couldn't believe :-)

In spring 1998 my girlfriend surprised me with a lent New Beetle. It was imported to germany by a car rent company. Remember: It was long before it was officially introduced to germany in winter 1998.

We attracted more attention as if we drove a Ferrari or Lamborghini. The people around us drove around the car, waving to us and staring on the car.

Weather wasn't really sunny but it didn't rain, that was the main thing. The anti theft alarm woke up a small city because I was not able to deactivate it ;-)

Also I was impressed by the interior: Lots of room for my 190cm and the stereo-sound was excellent. Also there was enough room on the dashboard to serve the breakfast ;-)

I testdrived this New Beetle in winter 1998/1999. In fact it wasn't a TDI but better than nothing ;-)

We visited the Bodensee in south of germany by another lent New Beetle. This time we had a TDI and I was very impressed about it's power and low fuel consumption. In my opinion the TDI is the best choice :-)
