Body shop class taught me to get the paint right, go to the local paint supplier for Autobody shops.
A place like PPG will have a paint sample book to look up the color code that VW used for that year. It's the best way to get the paint right.

You should be able to find a supplier in the Yellow Pages under Autobody Supplies.

Has anyone had any experience with painting after-market parts to the specific color of your vehicle?

best thing is that even if you do find the right match it will look newer than old part, and that sucks, most paint places will try to match color, but, will still look newer

I hit the front bumper bottom light of my 2005 volkswagen beetle. The bulb is fine but the plastic is broken where can i go fix it.

Any independent VW repair shop for lower repair cost compared to a dealer. They will order the part for you and install it. If painting is involved, you'll need to bring it to a body shop so the can color match the pait to the part, this doesn't necessarily be a specific VW auto-body shop but it might speed things up since they have more resources for part hunting.

Broken wing mirrow, need complete replacement , where can I prurchase one ??

You can get one at your local VW dealer and pay a fortune or try local auto salvage yards, (check the yellow pages). You'll get it a lot cheaper bur either way you'll need to have it painted to match your car or leave it flat black. If it wasn't a power mirror the change is an easy DIY.

all vw cars have a computer on board that controls a fuzzylogic gearbox.the racier you drive the higher the revs before upchange and vise versa ie low/low change so the harder you drive the more noticable the gearshift will be in auto mode.manual mode will always be jerky compared to a std auto box.THE JOYS OF NEW TECHNOLOGY.....

I have a 2001 Vw Beetle. The front bumper grille

Your best bet is to call & speak directly to a VW parts dept & ask them. U can order whatever parts u need online & probably save $ but call & find out what parts u really need. If its needs a certain paint color only the dealer will be able to order the original parts or u may have to have it painted to your want. Good Luck
