Thanks again for all the info.
My '96 cost me, including some back tax; $18,000 pesos. That, I think is about $1,800 U.S.
If anyone is interested in looking in to importing to the U.S.A, lets see what we can do?
I do have another question for you guys. The fuel injection system incl fuel pump has been replaced by a carb and mech/fuel pump. Is this ok or do I need to put back the F.I?
Thanks

what part of mexico are you in? are you close to the us border?

My bug is only a 1600cc, but is wouldn't suprise me to find 2000cc.
There is a guy here in Guadalajara who has put a Jetta 1800 in his bug, radiator the lot. It looks ok. I like the GM motors, I have always had them in the UK, but there they are called GM Vauxhall. I have had Caviliers with 1300 and 1600. I like them because if the Cam-belt breaks, everything doesn't meet in the middle; it just shuts down. Good or what?
Thanks for you replies.

"new" started in '98 I believe. One of many reasons the "old" ended.
