Don’t you just love that new car smell?

Don’t you just love that new car smell??? Well from the looks of it, Dick Gilpin’s best friend loves it too … let’s just hope the key’s aren’t in it!
Alex and Dick\'s New Beetle
I know Dick’s been waiting along time for his new car to arrive and from the looks of it … its a beauty. He ended up with a Red 2006 VW Beetle TDI … package 2. It has the DSG transmission (Direct Shift Gearbox) which offers the best of an automatic with the positive engagement of a ‘true tiptronic’ transmission. (it shifts instantly with the flick of the shifter) I would find it hard pressed to chose between this gearbox and a 5 speed … it is that ‘un-slush-like.’

Dick forwarded a few photo’s that he posted on his personal site that I’ll link to here. Congratulations … you’ve got a great little beetle … I only hope you can convince Alex to let you drive?

    Alex seems quite a natural behind the wheel : )

    Very sharp Beetle BTW, those wheels look great! Red & Tan interior is a great combo. Congrats on the new TDI!
