Can anyone help me out?
Just bought a second hand car and looking to do some VCDS tweaks but I cannot find the OBD2 port to plug in my VCDS. Any ideas?

That car was built(1955-1974) well before OBD2 was even thought of ;)

Nice car though :thumbs:

Did you know I have the original Bosch setup machines for those cars and I know how to use them? :p

I have the hand held version from Grundig to plug into that beetle!

Well for one I have the blue Bosch box that plugs into tailpipe to measure CO & with OXS to set fuel mixture on road under load.

Very rare tool!

Supported early mechanical rail fuel injection for 906 , CIS and carbs too!

Be surprised what you can do with vacuum gauge to sync and later mixture gauge to add to cockpit.

This and timing light but if in full spirit a VAG 1267

You should lower the rear torsion bar plates back to stock for safer driving. Can be done in .9 degree increments.
