    A down to earth help guide for performance

    This book divides performance upgrades for your Type I into 3 different sections, depending on what kind of power and performance you are looking for. Brakes, Engine and suspension are covered in each section. This is a supurb overview of what steps could be taken to get the best performance out of your Beetle. This does not, however, cover some of the more technical aspects, but does cover some. All-in-all, a great read for the VW lover.
