1999 GL New Beetle wouldn't start at 7:30am after parking it at 11:30pm the night before. New battery two days ago. All dash lights came on. Was cold last night, but mechanic was able to start it yesterday...

Sounds like high resistance in the starter circuit wiring. You should check resistance between the starter and battery, with the battery DISCONNECTED, and ensure that the number is pretty low anything more than a few ohms is too high for this connection.

sounds like water ingress to either a control module or the coil pack, check all control box locations eg footwells for water and then check the engine bay for loose or naked wires, dry and clean and possibly cover with a plastic bag etc and it should be fine.
