The shift rod is already shortened and the shifter raise box is in place!

The Berg unit is a little high, so is the short CSP shifter but Thomas from CSP stepped in and is going to make a "one off shifter" with a 5 centimetre shorter rod for me! Number 14 from the 77 shifters made for Bug in in going to be really special!

ULTRA VW talks to...

Silvia was having a "CohhBeaH" while reading the T3D / Puppy interview in the latest Ultra VW issue! Our english friends wanted a cold beer but slangwise the waiter in Hannover understood "COKE BEER"! and brought this north Germany specialty! From what I heard neither Beaker nor Ben did like it but Puppy gladly took over to help his friends out!

THE OLD AND THE NEW

Yesterday was a big day! I finally dropped off my T5 and got the new one! The old car was at the dealership 42 times in the last 2years to get mechanical problems fixed! Finally the Volkswagen Werk decided to take it back and let me have another one!

I decided to go for a Caravelle (Made in Germany, hopefully) instead of a Shuttle (Made in Poland) this time! Besides the little darker shade of blue it basically is the same car! 4Motion, dual slider,TDI 174horses, 5seater, long wheel base!

Mathias 13 window

We recently imported this og paint LOTOS WHITE 67 13window from the US.

The body is almost perfect but the mechanical side is f....d! It was lowered by taking springs out of the beam. Only 2!!! were remaining in each tube! Brake? Not existing! Axle boots? Ribbed!... the list is endless! But the body....! Unbelievable!

It´s coming along good now and will be delivered next week!
