    I finally built the roadster, see photo section. Great MOC! and great fun to build. In particular, I like the steering column, the head rests, the front lamps, the grille, the mudguards, and the overall "curvy" body shape of that beautiful car.

    But there are a few issues:
    • The instructions make use of 5 tiles 1x2 black, while in the 10220 set are only 3. The passenger compartment floor has to be modified by the use of 2 more black tiles 2x2.
    • There are some weaknesses around. The weakest part of the car ist the front axle, holding each front wheel only by 2 studs - from the under side! This has got very fragile. I fixed it with another technick brick 1x2 and a tile 1x4 (both from the 10220 set) on each side. Other issues are the connection of the exhaust pipe (see your MOC photo), as well as many submodules are connected with only one stud. The good message is: It can be fixed.

    Thanks for sharing!

      I've finally fixed the issues and tweaked a lot. The final result (see photo) with proper PDF instructions you can find here.

    There is probably something wrong with the LXF. Front and rear section of the car seem to have a weak Connection, everything happens in a space only 2 studs Long. And underneath, there are technic Pins free Floating in the air... It seems to me like there were some technic bricks (2x the Grey ones, for ex) missing to re-inforce the Frame of the car.

    Great moc!  I rebuilt the hood assembly though - was having problems keeping that 2x4 flat tile to stay put.

      Hi, thanks!!

      Finally I succeeded in uploading the LXF-file.
      I hope it works properly.
      (by the way: the "building mode" in LDD doesn't work right. I recommend to use the hide-button so you can figure out the way it is built. It's a bit of a puzzle but fun  also.)

    Message from aparat that came in via Change Request:

    Inventory is totally wrong. You have to re-count it. Present thing is for original 10220 model.
    Acordding to this MOC's lxf file(it is normal), this model needs only 428 bricks.
    And this MOC is 'modification', not 'alternate'. This model needs some of bricks that don't exist in 10220(1x 3666 black, 1x 3022 black, 1x 3795 black and 4 more 3069 black).
    Source: I built this model.

      After reading the comments about the wrong bricks in the model I've rebuilt the model.
      My apologies for the mistakes in the LDD-file. 
      I have adjusted the LDD model so now it should be fairly easy to build the model.  
      However, I didn't change the inventory,  since it is an alternate build for the set 10220.  It's a lot of extra work, but for what?
      I tried to upload the improved LDD version on ldd.us.lego.com. I hope it will be available soon.
      I also added fenders at the front of the car.
      Hope you'll enjoy.

        If you correct the inventory, then more people will have a chance to build it without having 10220-1 in their possession since nobody orders the curtains and fabric, decals and such if they don't need to. I have a huge pile of pieces left on my desk after building this, that I didn't need to pull. Other people who created alternates for this model have modified the inventory to match their builds.

    Such a beautiful and brilliant MOC. I love it. But inventory is totally wrong. This is for original 10220 set.
    Actually it needs 428 bricks and it includes seven that don't exist in original set.
    Please fix it.

    I'm sorry but looks are quite deceiving when you actually attempt to build. Is there any quality control to these posts? Sequences are way off in many places and some parts are not available in the original VW Van set. After several days of attempting sequence after sequence and rebuilding multiple time I ran out of patience and gave up.
