Nice pics! The Beetle looks superb! I love the overall look of it. The Golf's pretty well maintained as well.

Vikram,

Happy to see your golf man,

Awsome man, Keep your VW Beetle in the same condition man,

Thats the only Porsche we have in the club dude.

Would like to see the golf in a different shade sometime.

Excellent cars both my friend. Loved them. Are they owned by you my friend? If yes, then kudos to you for maintaining these two beauties.

Both cars look fundu and if I aint wrong Mohnish(memo45_m) used the same headlamps from the Golf on his baleno.

My only gripe is the GSD II's on the beetle,otherwise its picture perfect !!! Maybe its just me that I feel the rubber doesnt suit the car.

Golf 3's are very rare. Must have come on TR. There was a black 3 door without AC which was for sale in 1998 going for 1 lakhs more than a new Zen. Never seen that particualr car on the roads! Which engine does it have?

Excellent cars. Keep it up IVI. If you wanted the beetle that way then that's probably the best way to have a flavour of modernism blend into a classic.
Can you let us know for our knowledge what are the mods and replacements you have done on the beetle?
