Glass Options

So which type of glass should you select for your VW Beetle? When replacing the front windshield, there are a few options to consider: Dealer, OEM, Aftermarket, or Generic. So let’s look at each of these types a little closer.

Overall, we recommend installing an Aftermarket or OEM glass for replacement. These two glass types are cheaper than the Dealer option and won’t have quality issues like Generic off-brands. In addition, Aftermarket and OEM should match safety specifications set by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS), which helps ensure the glass keeps occupants safe. Check out our article on Auto Glass Manufacturers to learn more.

We’ve compiled a short list of additional services recommended to help keep your old and newer model Volkswagen Beetle running smoothly for years to come.

Other Helpful Products

Car Covers: Maintaining the shiny appearance of your Beetle is hard if you don’t have access to a garage which is why we recommend covering your car with a cover when you plan on parking for extended lengths of time. Car covers aren’t just for rain protection; they’re great for protecting against UV rays, bird droppings, tree sap, and dirt particles that can scratch the paint. Check out our Car Cover Guide to help pick the best cover for your Beetle.

Roof Racks: The interior of the Beetle is spacious, but a roof rack makes transporting large items more manageable and safer. Check out our article on rooftop cargo racks for a list of pros and cons.

A Little VW History

The Volkswagen Beetle was initially introduced by the German automaker in 1934, with its first production year in 1948, and its first sale to the public started in 1950. The small bubble-shaped vehicle known as the “bug” hit the scene as affordable, easy to drive, and fuel efficient.

The Beetle had seven generations over the years that slightly improved its appearance. Until 1967, the same number of glass parts could be found on the bug, but after 1967 the manufacturer removed the vent glass on the front doors to reduce weight, improve fuel economy, and give it a sleeker look.

The Beetle continued to evolve throughout the 1980s and 1990s. By 1998, the Beetle became available with a diesel engine, and in 2000 it received a facelift with a new grille and headlights.

Volkswagen produced the Beetle for 80 years, with seven generations offered to the public. These changes were slight and mostly unnoticed by most people, but they were noticeable to all Beetle enthusiasts.

The latest generation started production in 2009 and ended in 2019. Unfortunately, even with a large cult following and significant improvements, the sporty new A5 coupe and convertible didn’t generate enough demand to continue the production of this iconic automobile.
