good car to have imho. i have one and it's a daily driver. ultra reliable, handles lovely, keeps up with most traffic even on the motorway and it has tons of storage room (can fit tent n everything for a camping weekend plus supplies for adult n 2 kids in)
:D

i was never a fan of the curved screen, i happened to aquire one for 100 quid ( i couldnt let a beetle get scraped) my 1302 was good, but this is pukka! lowered 2" with the right sort of tyre combo, i been using it for all the long haul drives to shows this year, its comfy handles well and the storage space in the front is a god send.

they look even better with a porsche body kit :D :lol:

Great cars but very prone to rot especially framehead area.

Our 72 is pretty solid although one Ive been working on was fit for scrap

I had a Germanlook 1303 with 7inch ats wheels on all for corners and a decent suspension set up and it handled like it was on rails. You can't beat them for cornering in the aircooled vdub world. Same go's for 1302's obviously. One day i will have another with a big type4 motor and an even better suspension set up, porsche 944T rear arms and big brembo brakes :)

Have a look at Germanlook.com there are some awesome cars on there. ;)
