Vicky Ellison - 2001 VW New Beetle Cup 1.8T

Ordered new from a German VW dealer over 11 years ago and lovingly cared for by hand with lots of water and soapy stuff ever since. Never been machine polished or wet sanded.

Like to keeping it looking clean and shiny but motorsport themed (body and engineering, including race engine) so designed to be driven - and it is!

Goes out in all weathers and not just in UK - a regular visitor to VW / tuner shows in France, Belgium, Holland, Germany and occasionally Austria.

500+ miles to Europe in the pouring rain a speciality (especially this year!!) so have to expect the odd blemish.

Prep includes:
Bodywork soapy rinse, clear rinse, hand wash, rinse, dry

Wheels off – washed, dried, polished & sealed

Wheel arches, suspension, exhaust, brakes - cleaned and polished

Underbody cleaned (as far as can be reached!)

Bodywork hand polished (a couple of times if I get the time)

Windows cleaned inside and out

Interior vacuumed & cleaned, leather surfaces cleaned and fed

Engine detailed

Tyres dressed

Thanks for the kind words - the bodykit is from Volkswagen Racing UK and the two piece forged wheels are BBS RS-GT from Japan in 8.5" and 9.5"x 20" in 5x112pcd.
"I don't normally like Beetles but......" - how may times have I heard that since owning mine? Always makes me smile so thank you

Not sure I'm allowed to say? Let's say it's from America where 'zed' is pronounced 'zee' and I'll leave the rest to 'destiny'
