    Golf 2.5

    Anyone else notice this sticker? Notice where it calls the car a "Golf 2.5".

    This will make some of you name-haters very happy .



    I found it while I was going through my paperwork. So VW actually DOES officially refer to it as a Golf 2.5 somewhere

    Last week someone newly over from the UK came to admire my "Golf". I told him that in North America it was badged as a Rabbit. If someone calls it a Golf, it doesn't bother me, I know what they mean.

    I'll have to find this sticker. I'm not surprised. Don't think VW was going to go to the hassle of putting Rabbit instead of Golf for cars coming to this country.
    Maybe they're saving money by just having the Rabbit logo on the car rather than having the name spelled out. They only have to stick two things on the back of the car rather than four letters for Golf.

    That was a picture that I took back when I had it, just now got around to posting it.

    And I still have all of my paperwork, I didn't want the dealership snooping at it (not that they couldn't know all my numbers anyways). But, I'd rather hold on to it.

    That sticker MUST be stickered to the inside wheel well. It has all the info a tech needs for alignment and suspension, engine, trans etc. It's a quick ref. if you will.

    Thank you for making somebody's life more difficult!

    It's still on the yellow paper, tucked in with my paperwork. Came that way from Keffer VW, if you want to call them and give them a tech's opinion on where to put that sticker

    Hmm.... how bad would it throw you off if you found that sticker on, say, a GTI?

    Customer gets a really fooked up alignment.

    I just look at the PR numbers from your build sheet if I need something super uber vin specific.
