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.
