    Anyone have one of the new beetles? Just wondering what modifications people have done on them and what their opinions are. Also, anyone know how difficult it is to put a turbo on one of the standard models aftermarket?

    had one. don't buy one. choppy handling, medoicre acceleration. mine had tons of problems, but vw has fixed many since my year. if you're going to be spending ~$20k on a vehicle, there's much better to consider, like the scion tc, subaru impreza, nissan sentra, or mazda 3.

    i hope you're not thinking of putting a turbo on a 2.0l. it's a naturally aspirated engine, so unless you plan on putting new valves in constantly, don't do it. if anything, get the 1.8t and chip it. they're capable of running more than 8psi (stock).
