  2. 12 volt conversion?

    Classic VW Beetle / Bug Forum
    We just purchased a 66 Beetle that I believe has been converted from a 6 volt system to a 12 volt (everything is currently 12 volt). Under the hood was a wiring nightmare, most of the fuse block was unhooked and the wire ends were just taped together. After replacing the fuse block and fixing...

  6. Researching 2018 Passat

    Passat B7 Forums
    Is it me or do all reviewers follow the same script? Conservative styling will age well, but boring. Huge back seat legroom and decent headroom, before discussing front seating, dash. Light steering, too much lower hard plastic and too small infotainment screen. For me the V6 Passat is a...
