NOT SURE IF I REALLY LIKE IT OR NOT.

I DO LIKE THE KINDA CHOP TOP LOOK, THE LENGTHENED FRONT END GIVING IT A LITTLE MORE OF A VOLKSROD LOOK, BUT THE BACK LOOKS LIKE THE AUDI TT I THINK.

WHATS YOUR OPINIONS?

Could be worse.
Less toyish and charachature-like than the old NB. if they get 10 ears and decent sales out of it, it's worth whatever the tooling costs. They're free advertising.

I think it's cool they're trying to bring it back into the scene but I would go for a more retro look.

NOPE... still don't like it. I know.. I know.. opinions are like a..holes.. everyone has one and they all stink...

Looks like a frankin baby from an audi.... They put the poor little beetle in a med-evil stretch machine and the guy with the black hood just kept cranki'n.... LOL

I think bras or 'stone guards' as they are referred to across the pond are cool.

I wish I could drive my Ghia to Denmark, after today, I would go...
