SOUND LIKE BAD THERMOSTAT REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP..BUT YOU NEED TO MIX 50/50 MIXTURE OF ANTIFREEZE AND WATER IN THE COOLING SYSTEM TO RAISE BOILING TO KEEP CAR FROM OVERHEATING.

Hi, overheating can be caused by anything that decreases the cooling system's ability to absorb, transport and dissipate heat: A low coolant level, a coolant leak (through internal or external leaks), poor heat conductivity inside the engine because of accumulated deposits in the water jackets, a defective thermostat that doesn't open, poor airflow through the radiator, a slipping fan clutch, an inoperative electric cooling fan, a collapsed lower radiator hose, an eroded or loose water pump impeller, or even a defective radiator cap.
It seems the Beetle use an electric cooling fan that cycles on when the engine gets hot and when the air conditioner is on. So the problem is not the fan...
Since you have replaced the thermostat and there is no leak, then check for Leaky Head Gasket, Slipping Belt, Lower Radiator Hose Collapsing , Plugged or Dirty Radiator, Excessive exhaust back pressure, Overheated incoming air, Dragging brakes, Overworking the engine.....................
