See the thing is wrt the turbo bug is as crazy as it sounds... it didn't feel any faster then mine? Like it was obviously. It effortly accelerated where mine struggles. But it didn't feel as zippy as I would expect. Mine is slow to accelerate but once you get up to speed it's about as much fun.
That's probably because the 2.0 turbo they sent to the US was 46hp and 75ftlb down on the 2.0 turbo I had :burnrubber:

Not to be negative but the thing with nostalgia is that people forget all the bad and focus only on the good. That’s why we all have this friend who keeps getting back together with her shitty ex.

Nostalgia only takes you so far and with basing the Beetle on Golf chassis it was never going to be a particularly good car, not because Golf is a bad car. But because Golf is a much more practical car compared to the Beetle with way more mass appeal.
