Why does the 2.slo need a 6spd, auto or manual?<P>Just put the 1.8T in it with a 6spd manual!<P>They did the same thing with the Cabrio by never offereing the VR6. No wonder guys never bought them!<P>

I actually like it... First VW I can say I like... Wouldn't own it, but I kind of picture a nice looking woman driving it. Judging by these pics I think VW is thinking the same thing.<P>Jay

6 spd manual. The only car with a 6 spd auto is the new BMW 7 series.

Its not only 7-series having a 6-speed Auto tranny. The same tranny is fitted in Jaguar S-type. <P>You can also get Audi TT with a new developed 6-speed auto with tiptronic. Probably the same tranny as in the new beetle cabrio.

No, the 2.slow will have a 6 speed automatic, to help make the most of its power. the 2.slow is their bread and butter engine in the US, but with a relatively low hp rating of 115, the 6 speed should help out a lot.<P>

YEAH, bay-bee! Ha ha. This rag-top new beetle looks GREAT! I usually don't like chrome on cars, but that chrome strip around the belt-line looks <I>sharp</I>!
