Readers Rides Post pics, specs and build-up stories of your vehicles - or even your garages here. Also interesting stuff about your 'daily drivers' etc. or interesting cars you have seen on your travels, even motors-based TV shows you can recommend. Please, 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 (use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled 'What's My Car Worth?' threads and "Who Can Sell Me A . . ." posts.

Default Hello from a newbie

Iíve been lurking about here since before the summer as had been looking for a beetle convertible.

I finally bought one last week and am chuffed to bits with it.

Iíve already started posting noddy questions since owning it and there are sure to be more of those (sorry in advance).

But I did want to post to say hi and to show off my new addition.

Default Hello from a newbie

Thanks.

Iím really pleased with it. It was exactly what I was looking for and I held out for ages to find it.

I havenít formed a plan yet although my first step will be to remove the whitewalls. Iím not so keen on them myself.
Minor jobs around the car to get it tip top.

The steering wheel needs attention as the centre horn ring isnít fixed right.



Otherwise I just plan to enjoy the end of the summer and hopefully into the autumn before penning a list....
