    Default Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP)

    Lets all contribute pics and memories to this timeless classic that has faithfully served generations. It is my 1st car memory and my dad who is a Beetle enthusiast at one time had a total of 4 beetles in our garage Here's a little history of this miraculous German wonder: 'The history of the Beetle really goes back to pre 2nd world war Germany when Ferdinand Porsche had a vision of a mass produced vehicle that was affordable to the average German, an idea that was shared with the young Adolf Hitler who himself could not drive, but was a car fanatic. Hitler was apparently influenced by the achievements of Henry Ford and his production lines - reading Ford's biography while in prison during 1923. Porsche had previously worked on some other small cars that used many elements later to be included in the Beetle. The Type 32 prototype NSU of 1934 was an air-cooled rear engined four cylinder horizontally opposed powered car that used torsion bar suspension and featured beetle-like styling.' --- source - Google.co.uk lets keep the posts rolling - add pics of bugs you've owned or own! I'll add my dad's bug family pics as well ... I guess he fell in love with this oddly shaped car after he drove it down to Pakistan from Germany!!!! .. stories of that wonderous journey keep us entertained whenever our family gets together

    Never give up .. cuz that is when the tide will change!...

    Close in the sense that it has to do with the wipers and the washer system but thats not it.

    It is the OG cap to the air filling nosel on the windscreen washer water bottle in the trunk.

    Default Suggestion: Official VWCOP partners

    A suggestion just came up, why doesn't the VWCOP have a few ''official'' mechanics, denters, panel beaters and painters? That way, the amateurs (such as myself) and some owners who aren't familiar with the VWCOP have an idea on who to hand over their VW's too and most importantly why.

    There should be a list which should have the following format:

    - Name
    - Occupation (denter, painter, panel beater, mechanic)
    - Location
    - Pros
    - Cons
    - Amount they charge (low, medium and high)
    - Rating on 0-10 scale
    - Would you suggest them to other VDubbers (yes or no, and explaining the reason for your answer)

    It's just a suggestion, I hope no one finds this little suggestion offensive in any manner.

    It is a great suggestion. We have been recommending the experts in their fields, be it panel beating (denting) electricians and most important of all the mechanics, when fellow vee dubbers have asked for our input.

    Our website too has a section where individual VW owners can leave feedback for any VW tech person. We would only monitor the language to keep the comments civil for all visitors to the page. (the website is currently down after an attack by Serbian hackers who defaced the front page and a lot more. We hope to have a simple version of it up at the earliest)

    The issue with giving any one (or more) mechanics, electricians or dentors an official status is that individual experiences vary. e.g one very popular panel beater made a complete mess of my car while there is an army of satisfied customers who would not hear a negative word against him. I suggest the best way to go about would be to post individual recommendations and feedback. You, for example, would rate your mechanic very high and recommend everyone in Karachi to go see him if they wanted their cars fixed. (wouldn't you?)

    I would however recommend that individuals not fly off the handle at the first bad experience. VW experts are a dying breed ..an endangered specie, so please provide feedback with care.

    While you get work done on your car, its best to observe with full attention. You may find that the same work could have been performed by yourself or with the help of your younger brother at home.

    Sooner rather than later, we'll have to rely on our own skills to keep our beloved bugs alive. Better start preparing.

    Mechanicals; Khalid Sb. hands down!

    About Panel Beating;

    - I really like work of Muntazir, the guy who worked on the Split Window Beetle. He's outstanding craftsman, can be very detail oriented. And I believe we already have seen what I mean. His business conduct however, remains in question. But I will go to him to get my VWs done anyday.

    - I have teamed with Arshad in past. He is/can be phenomenol when steered patientlly. When he does a job full heartedly, he's second to none, that's his competitive advantage.

    Painters...well Painters, I wish I could talk painters. Always have had a 'wish' to find someone who could really turn ashes into gold, but its STILL a wish to see someone like that YET.

    However, I've been in discussions with various members of VCCCP over finding a quality painter. The most suitable painter (by far - to me) has been the guy who did Junaid's Austin A35 in LHR. HERE you can see the a$$-kicking job he did on the Austin A35. However I still have to go see his paint job in person in second week of July, after which I might be in a better position to decide whether to team up with him or to look for someone else.

    Edit: And Oh, the guy who did Mouqeem Sb./Shakeel's 60 bug again, has done a job I would want any day.

    Absolutely right... especially for transmission lube mostly mechanics suggest not to change...

    If you use such mechanics then its best to just use their services and place and get them to follow what YOU SAY, they dont know jack about the difference between oil and alchohol..

    I once faced a situation where a 1KZ diesel hilux surf needed a fan clutch, and the mechanic was saying ye time a zya hai, d'rect kardetay hain, solad thanda hoga injun,

    This hilux was owned by a freinds colleague at work, I asked him to get me the clutch and I refurbed it over the weekend with 3000 cst silicone fluid, cleaned and polished it too that it looked brand new. I also asked the owner to tell the mechanic its brand new. I met the mechanic while it was being installed and he was talking smack about how people get looted - this fan clutch is just a way to loot money by "kompany" When I explained that I actually rebuilt it he was dead silent for about a good two minutes with a dead blank face. I then told him that if you dont know but have the wish to inquire - then ask about for information rather than starting to assume stuff, your business will increase. He was a molvi type so I told him in Qoranic reference.

    This is a great suggestion. I did something on about the exact same lines on Orkut years ago, come to think of it it was around a good 7 to 10 years ago.

    Now Im not even sure if Orkut is still functional

    Nasir bhai has provided much valuable input on how to go about this. I think his guidelines must be followed by all.
    If there are no Beetles in heaven, Im not going!!!

    I am interested in the following
    57) air and hazard knobs (i only require the air knobs. Are these the 2 fresh air knobs? Please post a picture)

    60) inner door handle caps(are these the inserts that go inside the interior door handle that hides the screw? Post a picture please)

    74) headlight bowl (for confirmation, these are the reflector bowls? Condition? post a picture of this too)

    I was trying to call you but could not connect. I left a text message instead. Please respond at the soonest.

    Thanks.
    But the question is, will it do a burnout?

    Illyas Mechanic and his boy Shahid in I&T Centre, G-8/4, Islamabad is also considered as good mechanic. I have seen many beetles here and few talks, they were satisfied with the mechanic. He don't have special workshop like Khalid sb but works good.

    Never been with Ilyas, so no comments. But Patina, my 1965 bug has a history with them as I have been told by the PO and @shahzebulhaq. And she wasn't in any bad touch when she passed onto me.

    But I have teamed up with Ustaad Asghar & his Son, Zeeshan (AKA Shani - 0300 580 7044/RWP) whenever I didn't get time with Khalid Sb. Never had a complaint after teaming up with them. So I can vouch for the duo.

    But I would only recommend going to them only if you know your bugs because then you can always talk them into doing bookish things wherever they are deviating.
