What a sweet little machine! Wife will drive it to work and around town. I was impressed with the handling and tractable engine (not quite as quick as my WRX, but much more torque down low). Love the interior trim, leather seats, etc.
Couple questions: any watchouts on 03's (yes, this was a new 03)? and also - anyone know how to defeat that obnoxious spoiler - I keep thinking there's a loose six pack rolling around back there!
Still, what a nice package this is. Love it and wife is insane over it
03 Turbo S - lipstick red!

Re: Just added a Turbo S to the stable (gnosys)

Congratulations! The TS AWP motor takes to modifications very well. Performance software ( revo ), eurosport downpipe with high-flow cat and you'll be trading cars with your wife.
Do a search over on newbeetle.org to find out where its motor wire is located for disconnecting.
In a few months the spoiler noise with quiet down, mine did.
I've had no problems with mine with many modifications. I've had it a year last November - 21k miles.
