    If you want a new Beetle Cabriolet, you'll have to jump fast!

    I see from the VW UK website that you can no longer configure a new Beetle Cabriolet, and the April 2018 price list says you can only buy from existing stocks. So the factory production line must have stopped now

    No Golf convertibles, no EOSs, no Beetles... has the VW convertible car died for ever now??

    Possibly... but the last I heard that car wasn't due to be launched until late 2019

    I sat in a New Beetle Cabrio when it was launched at the Frankfurt IAA show and I said to my jurno friend “do I look gay in this” at which point a German VW pr sales girl I had not noticed just cracked up laughing. I didn’t know Germans had a sense of irony.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Is this why a part I have been waiting for since May to fix a window motor isn't coming into the country? I keep being fobbed off and the date being put back. I can't use the soft top as it won't work as window motor is broken! It's a waste of money, and no one is helping me. Local agent has done all they can. VW say that the German factory can't get the part. I have no idea what to do. It's such a waste of money. I got a convertible so I could use it as a convertible!
