    Hello all I see many beetles on my travels I even saw a pale blue beetle today whilst on my test drive now the salesman tells me I should've flashed and waved at it? Is this correct? Unfortunately he told me this afterward anyway it was just near the m1 junction 25 roundabout coming out the sandiacre turning about half 2-3pm today just saying oh if you're on the forum

    Sorry I wasn't aware of the bug etiquette:) aww bless the guy also said apparently mini drivers wave to each other but I can't wave to a mini as they're the enemy ( his words not mine) so this is what the flyered means then?

    Hi - we are at M1 J25 - Toton so regularly see loads of New Beetles and 2012 Beetles in this area.
    As regards flowers in New Beetles - we've gone one step further and had them airbrushed here and there in ours :cool:

    and we ALWAYS flash and wave others but they might not recognise ours as a New Beetle :laughing:

    There's always one comedian :laughing: You are meant to be looking at the flowers on the dash, not the signs around Eindhoven on the big / new / flashy junction there.

    I wish the M1 in this part of the world looked like this - more often than not a 4 lane car park in both directions. And if getting there involves driving on the wrong side of the road so be it - I get soooooo fed up with the Morrisons brigade pootling everywhere at 25 in the 60 limits...... and breathe.

    i have a subtle black flower in mine, and i'll never remove it - means too much. :-(

    i also have two of the original VW fabric ones - one white one orange.
