I would like to see more folks reply.  You don't have to be a rocket scientist, these are simple little cars that's why we are the most intellegent travelers on the planet.  Okay, we all average low twenties in fuel mileage, thirty on a great day.  But, the money spent in owning transportations finest invention is very cost effective, (okay, I'll get off my little soapbox now...)  Come on, you read, then respond, please  Just my $.02, Patrick.

I agree, this forum was put up for us all to help each other. There are 335 members but not a lot of posting going on. Come on people lets go!

Thanks Steve!

I asked the members over at SuperBeetles to help out, so we'll see if it pick up around here. If not we could always use one forum for both sites. Problem is we'd have so many forums because we are trying to help all air-cooled owners at AllAirCooled.

All right!  Great to see folks chiming in!  How many are using their bugs as a daily driver?  How often do you replace brakes?

Patrick.
