First at­tempts at driv­ing one of these beasts pro­vide a steep learn­ing curve as chang­ing gear with­out mak­ing hor­ri­ble crunch­ing noises takes much mas­ter­ing. It pro­vides the an­ti­dote to mod­ern driv­ing as you have to think care­fully about ev­ery­thing you do and re­ally puts you in touch with your me­chan­i­cal side. Hear­ing the rock-steady beat of that flat-four air-cooled rear en­gine is bet­ter than any­thing you’ll find on the ra­dio - that’s why you’ll see so many VW driv­ers go­ing around with their driver’s side win­dow down on a warm day! En­joy­ing a wave and a know­ing smile from a fel­low VW owner will prove that oth­ers are on the same happy wave­length.
