Check out Airhead Parts and KGPR on Discovery UK! We're on with Mike Brewer's "Wheeler Dealers", providing parts for their refresh of a 1969 Karmann Ghia Cabriolet. KGPR owner, Scott Dempster's own 1969 Cabrio is featured in the episode set to air in late October. As soon as the date and time is confirmed, I'll post it here. Also be on the lookout for a HotVWs article on the filming of the episode.
In the meantime, here's a video of Mike taking the Airhead Parts in-house built 2332 FI turbo Super Beetle for a spin, after Scott asks him a little bit about his background. *Spoiler alert* He likes it ;)

BMW 3.0 CSL (E9) feature from 'Deals on Wheels' in 2000
Mike Brewer would be unrecognizable here if it weren't for his inimitable
cheeky cockney do-what leave it aaht gertcha east-end car salesman patter.
Could you really pick up a CSL in 2000 for £2k? I think Mr. Brewer is
talking about a regular E9.
Interesting choice of filming locations; a noisy chemical factory.
Apologies for the appalling quality of this vid. If I were you I wouldn't
stand for it.
vintage! The Karmann Ghia | drive it!
It is a heartbreaker of a car, a real dreamboat and possibly the most
beautiful VW ever built. However the sporty coupe does have one small
drawback. Its design is far racier than its driving performance.The first
Ghias were fitted wtih 30 horsepower VW Beetle
engines, while later models got 50 horsepower motors. Still,
when the Karmann Ghia was introduced back in 1955 this was more than enough
to keep vehicles like the Goggomobil and BMW Isetta in check. During it's
close to 20 years in production, some 443,000 Ghias were sold. Today this
classic car has nothing left to prove. We take a relaxing drive in this
stylish milestone of automotive history.
