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)
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 :lol:
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.
here,s my daily thrasher, porker 915 box 944 brakes alround, our suspension, used to have a 1911 screamer that did 14,s on the 1/4 remember its a road car! now got 2.1, 2.3 on its way for next year, cup rims blah blah............
