They were available but were special order only through this page, but the page has since been deprecated. The R-line started showing up in the dealerships not long ago, but a while back not many red ones were available. Mostly Black and White ones. If you look nation wide, their are still just a handful. I'm not so sure I like the black wheel wells though - looks good on a black or white R-Line, but on the Red makes it look a little "unfinished" This one at Larson has the nice 2 tone interior too, and the dash has the carbon look trim. Would love it if most of the black fender, door bolsters, and rear view mirrors were red. Black in the bumper area is fine though. Otherwise a nice looking car. If you go to the VW web site they now show stock of the R-lines in the regular Beetle pages, but still no link to information on the R-line. Probably no brochures at the dealership either.

Probably didn't get as many special orders as they had hoped for and decided to offer them up in the dealerships, since they probably have plenty of parts on hand. MSRP $33K is a bit steep though.

According to old tech page - it does have 2.0T with 6 spd DSG, "sport suspension" and 20" Monterey wheels, the performance gauge cluster, leather seating surfaces and sports seats. Wonder what setup the sport suspension uses?
