Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

I bought one for my daughter back in the 90s... not a bad little car/toy... all plastic.

The charge in the battery never lasted for long though, I *think* they were 9v - I might be wrong, but swapping the battery out for a 12v car battery made it quicker (and the charge(s) lasted longer.)

I've no idea where you would get one now though - Ebay? And I've no idea on parts availability etc. Sorry.

Good luck.

They do come up now and again.
I would go for the best condition, most complete one you can find.. That way you will stand a better chance of getting your money back in the future
