It’s one of the most iconic vehicles of all time. The Volkswagen Beetle, or “bug” as they’re affectionately called, has been a staple in the American car scene since Doyle Dane Bernbach launched the ad campaign that would cement the Beetle’s status as a household name. And although Volkswagen has recently come out with the news that the beloved model would be moved out of production in 2019, Beetle aficionados everywhere continue to take to the streets with their favorite cars. 

If you happen to own a Volkswagen Beetle, there’s a good chance it’s over a certain age. That means your bug is likely due for some headlight maintenance, or possibly a replacement. If you are in need of a replacement, check out our review below of how to find the right Volkswagen Beetle headlight set for you.
