I BOUGHT THIS 4 YEARS AGO AND IT HAS REALLY BEEN A HEAD TURNER. IT WAS JUST BUILT WHEN I BOUGHT IT, FROM THE CHASSIS UP. THE ONLY THING WAS THE WIRING HAD A PROBLEM SO I HAD THE WHOLE THING REWIRED BY A PROFESSIONAL RESTORER. I HAVE ABOUT 8800.00 IN THE BUGGY BUT KNOW I WON'T GET THAT OUT OF IT. I JUST HAD THE VALVES TUNED THIS SUMMER BY A VW MECHANIC. THE CHROME WHEELS ARE IN GREAT SHAPE ALONG WITH THE TIRES WHICH ONLY HAVE ABOUT 3000 MILES ON THEM. AS A MATTER OF FACT THATS ALL THE MILES THE BUGGY HAS ON IT. I JUST DROVE IT AROUND TOWN AND TO THE BEACH ONCE. IT HAS BEEN A VERY DEPENDABLE CAR FOR ME AND I WOULD'NT BE AFRAID TO DRIVE IT ANYWHERE. A LOT OF CARE HAS GONE IN TO THIS ORIGINAL MANX (PAPERWORK TO PROOVE). THE FRONT BUCKET SEATS ADJUST BACK AND FORTH AND LEAN FORWARD. THERE IS ONE SMALL HOLE IN THE PASSENGER SEAT ABOUT THE SIZE OF A PENCIL ERASER. THE CHROME WHEELS HAVE NO RUST AND SHINE LIKE NEW. THE CD PLAYER IS BY SONY AND HAS SPEAKERS BUILT INTO THE BACK SEAT WITH TWEETERS UP FRONT. IT HAS PLENTY OF PUNCH AND DOES HAVE THE REMOTE. ALL GUAGES WORK EXCEPT THE GAS GUAGE. PROBOBLY A SIMPLE FIX BUT I JUST KEEP IT FULL. IT HAS A DIMMER SWITCH FOR THE HEADLIGHTS ON THE FLOORBOARD. THERE IS A READING LIGHT ON THE REAR VIEW MIRROR. ALL SPEEDS SHIFT SMOOTHLY ALTHOUGH IF YOU ARE ON AN INCLINE IT MAY JUMP OUT OF REVERSE SOMETIMES. IT HAS SEATBELTS UP FRONT AND ONE THAT GOES ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE BACK SEAT. ALL LIGHTS AND SIGNALS WORK. THE ENGINE DOES NOT SMOKE AND HAS LOTS OF POWER. I HAVE TOLD ABOUT EVERYTHING I CAN THINK OF ON THIS FINE BUGGY AND AM BEING STRAIT UP ABOUT EVERYTHING. YOU ARE WELCOME TO CALL WITH ANY QUESTIONS AT (803)475-4798.

Volkswagen is no stranger to special editions, but its Touareg SUV has remained largely unspecial in terms of exclusive trims or unique packages. That's changed with the announcement of the Touareg X, a 1,000-unit run based on the V6 TDI Lux trim - mid-range diesel model, between the navigation-equipped TDI Sport and the TDI R-Line.

The already special Touareg gets 19-inch "Moab" wheels, LED taillights (to go along with its LED DRLs) and "Touareg X" badging, while all 1,000 units will be painted Moonlight Blue Pearl. Tweaks in the cabin are equally light, with a black-on-black-on-black color scheme dominating - black Vienna leather, a black headliner and piano black trim. Aluminum bits make an appearance in the form of the door sills and pedals, although that's about it.
Other than those few aesthetic tweaks, the Touareg X is equipped largely like the Touareg Lux on which it's based. That means navigation, a panoramic sunroof, power seats, LED running lights, dual-zone air conditioning and heated power seats, among other tech pieces. Pricing starts at $56,170, making for a slight bump of $1,195 over the standard Touareg Lux.
Volkswagen is not messing around when it characterizes its new MQB architecture as modular. It's already underpinning the VW Golf, Audi A3, Seat Leon and Skoda Octavia, and will soon form the basis for many more. And here is the latest.

Unveiled at the Chengdu Motor Show in China this weekend is the new Volkswagen Lamando, a four-door coupe similar in size to a Jetta but with the svelter roofline of the larger Passat-based CC to go after the Mercedes-Benz CLA. It's essentially the production version of the New Midsize Coupe concept that previewed its arrival at the Beijing Motor Show this past April, and will be built locally for local consumption by VW's joint venture with SAIC.
Power comes from either a 1.4- or 2.0-liter turbo four mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, with an equivalent price tag below $30,000. Whether this or any similar vehicle ever arrives in North American showrooms remains to be seen, but we'll be watching to find out. In the meantime you can scope it out in the trippy video below and the photos in the gallery above.
We've returned from a very busy week in Switzerland, and in going back over all of our 75 stories from the Geneva Motor Show, our editors have gathered up their personal favorite debuts from the European expo.
The wonderful thing about the Geneva show is just how wide of an array of vehicles are on display - everything from funny little one-off EVs to the most exotic of supercars to, well, truly ridiculous displays of coachbuilding. And because of that, this list of our editors' favorites might not be as predictable as you think.
But we don't want to give anything away just yet. Scroll down to have a look at our team's favorites from Geneva.
