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 ;)

it a Hybrid. This is a great car and the electric part is done right these
kits cost $7500 to $9500 and then you have to install it and have a vehicle
prepped for it etc there is $15,000 to $20,000 you will not have to dump
into yours if your looking for the ultimate Hybrid. call anytime Nathan 406
Short excerpt from the VW Enthusiast Documentary: "Cruise Across America",
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.
