Still on my never ending list of things to own. So this leads me to ask the time honoured question

What's it like to drive mister?

(Sorry HMC, you must be fucking sick of this by now)

Mexibugs are on beam fronts, unlike the later German 1302/1303s with wobblestruts, so they're basically a pre-war design with improvements like disc brakes and such over time.

Was surprised with my first one ('78) feeling so pleasant to drive - the only surprise along the same lines was trying an Allegro and realising that it really wasn't that different to pootling about in a Micra, and it felt considerably more modern than the Chevette I tried the same day...

Losing @HMC was like a stomach punch. I didn't know how to cope without a fellow Tavonian shiter, I felt like I was flying the flag on my own.

But life's balance has been restored and he's back with another wartime jalopy. Beetles are an acquired taste and I have not acquired the taste. Then again I suppose maintenance is easy...

I realise that it might not be around for long or required but I've just uncovered a bunch of useful Mexibug docs I have saved, including Wiring diagrams, service schedule, adjusting the (hydraulic) tappets, Digifant ECU and 1600i engine spec, parts cross ref with other VAG etc. etc.

Let me know if is of interest to anyone and I'll post it all up.
