I can beat that. I have a recently purchased 2006 VW NewBeetle Turbo Diesel. Tremendous acceleration and torque for a 100 hp diesel. I stalk the Toyota Prisus'. I call it the "Prius eater". I "dislike" those UGLY "hybreed" (hybrid) cars. Ain't no ugly Prius hybreed going to hang with no 2006 NewBeetle TurboDieselInjection Silver Reflex five speed XM equipped tinted windows with light induction sunroof factory style rear spoiler s3x machine fuel efficient soot emitting VW. It's a fun car and gets great fuel mileage.

That's one good looking Bug (Beetle)! It looks almost as clean and neat as the R171 that you have.

Bill T (///AMG 55), I like it: "Good -1-" -1-.
