So VW has released a new Baja Beelte with only a minor height increase and a distinct lack of Baja-ness.

May I suggest something better?

Way better, even if the roof rack looks like it would be more at home holding up towels in my bathroom.

Bet it's not a diesel. (I didn't read the article).

This isn't the first Baja edition beetle from VW. My BIL had one back in 1972. It didn't make much sense either, since the difference was the paint color, wheels and a dash plaque.

I love this. Since my daughters beetle is currently sitting in my shop with another minor problem i'm going to look underneath and see how hard this would be to do. I think the fenders also need to be cut.
