Edition 40 Clubsport Plaques
« on: 13 February 2020, 20:59 »
Does anyone (Lee evo1986?) know at what stage the Ed40 plaques were attached to the driver's doors and by whom?  Thanks.

Hi Trev
Believe they were applied by Volkswagen UK as owners in other countries did not have them. There was an owner from Holland and One from Sweden on this forum a few years ago.

Yes, UK are the only ones that got a plaque.  But given the cars came direct from Germany to the UK port, then straight to the dealer I was wondering when and where the plaque was attached to the door.  Maybe VWUK sent all the plaques to the factory in Germany and they applied them as they would know from the build sheet that the car was destined for the UK?  Just trying to find out definitively.

I was certain if anyone was going to know the answer, it was going to be you. :shocked: :grin: 

The factory must be the answer, surely?  Nothing else seem logically/logistically possible.  Maybe we'll never know, doesn't really matter now. I was just curious. :nerd:

Surely if you haven't got a clue then that must point to it being added in Germany during manufacture…. it makes perfect sense to me as the car is built to an individual customer spec anyway!

Besides do you think the Germans would allow a plaque to be applied out of square by someone in the UK??? :grin:

No.... that's an unusual response from a salesman! They normally tell you only what you want to hear and don't worry if its true or not!! :grin:
