with the help of you nice folks and Remco we have decided to flat tow the above vehicle. does anyone know if there is speed or distance limitations?


does anyone know if a 2000 vw beetle 5 speed transmission can safely be flat towed (4 wheel down)? i have heard yes and no, which is correct?

If there is, it will be noted in the Owner's Manual.
If you don't have the book, I strongly urge you to get one.
