  3. '67 Bug rust question

    Classic VW Beetle / Bug Forum
    I've recently bought a '67 Beetle but as I live in London don't have a garage to keep it in. With waxoyling and regular cleaning and waxing will rust still take hold eventually?... Or should it be okay as long as I'm vigilant?
  4. Looking for help!

    I have a 72 convertible and am hoping someone can point me in the right direction. It is running pretty well but needs mechanical and body work (interior and exterior). I live in northern Connecticut but am willing to travel. Does anyone know someone who’d be interested in this project?? Thank...
  5. New to VWOC, but bought my 74 Love Bug new!

    Air-cooled / FAQs
    Just found your site; I have owned my 74 "orange" Love Bug since new. Purchased during the fuel crisis of 1973...traded my Olds 442 for it. I live in Texas, so stopped driving it in 1980 when we had a string of 40+ 100 degree days. I retired in 2016 and decided it was time to "un-retire" the...

    I pick up my brand new 2018 GTI Autobahn on Friday, my first GTI, I’m so excited. But I want to get winter tires for them, and am looking for recommendations. Can I drop to a smaller wheel with a bigger profile winter tire, as long as the bolt pattern is still 5x112? Need to keep costs down...

    Jetta Owners Club
    I had a 2014 Jetta TDI Sportwagon with a factory installed roof rack and I purchased cross bars from the dealer. I sold it back to VW and now have a Golf Sportwagon but I had to buy new crossbars for the roof rack because the ones from the Jetta did not fit the Golf. Would like to sell them...
  14. how good are MK4 GTIs?

    GTI MK4 / 1999-2005
    Hello everyone, I'd definitely go with the 1.8T for tunability (Don't know if that's a word lol), unless you're really after that glorious VR6 sound. I got mine with 150k on it, put 20k on it and only had to replace a wheel mobdro.bio/ bearing and the very common coil pack. I have yet to have...

    Hey all, I've been living carless since 2010, and have finally worked myself into the position where it might make sense to own one again. I live in the Denver metro area, and will be shopping around soon for a basic commuter. I'm looking for (in order of importance) low maintenance, decent...
  17. Headlamp lenses

    Golf MK7 / 2015 and up
    Our Golf 7 is just four years old but the headlamp lenses are already losing their shine and becoming slightly opaque. I spoke to the dealer about this last time the car was serviced and he said that it was basically the sunshine denaturing the plastic. "Try to park out of the sun", was his...
