It might be beneficial to all MKIV drivers to check out the tech and how-to areas of newbeetle.org. There are tons of projects and fixes and you can make good use of the forum.

Remember...the New Beetle is just a MKIV in a rounder package. Everything works exactly the same way. Only difference is cosmetically and in the execution of some tasks.

Can't access the site? Need a link to something? PM me and i'll try and help.

vr6exy 01-23-2007 05:14 PM

are those from the mk4 thread? don't forget we have some mk3s on here too.

naDintheHat 10-04-2007 12:15 AM

Just wanted to add a really good source of DIY stuff for the mk3s on here :thumbup:
