Well, technically not the first purchase. I ordered a e-brake cover from chircoestore.com the other day, so I’ll call this the first big purchase. Didn’t realize the roof racks were so expensive, prices range from $177 to $269 for the powder coated steel racks from EMPI to $400+ for some other stainless steel brands. I like the racks, I think it’ll add a bit of nostalgia to the overall appearance of the Beetle. I ordered mine from Dunebuggywarehouse out of Hamilton, Ohio via Ebay. Hope it’ll be here in just a few days!
