Dose anyone have the VW logo in the front light clusters (on front of the light bulb cover)?

I parked next to a 54 plate golf yesterday and I looked at there lights and as I thought there was the VW logo in there, and that was a lover spec car than mine![:(]

I have a 2.0 GT TDI (04 plate) and the lights don't have the VW logo in them, I don't know if its not meant to have it in there with this model or year or if my car has been in a front accident before I bought it and they have replaced my lights with some cheep OEM's.[:O]

Can you all check your lights and tell me what year, model and wither you have the VW logo in there or not.

So what dose this mean? Different spec from different factories?

No, all Golfs are built in the same factory. Euro ones anyway all come from Wolfsburg.

Changes came as a mini model revision around last May.

As has been mentioned by previous posters, the VW bulb shield is one of a number of modifications introduced by the 2005 model. This model appears to have started being manufactured around the May 2004 time. Consequently, a number of 04 reg cars (like my own) are 2005 models.

From memory, I think the sticker in your car's handbook and/or the sticker in the boot actually states your car's model year.

Probably around June time this year we will hear from new owners of 2006 model cars. I wonder what modifications they will have.

They will probably have such things as:

- bottle opener on a reinforced metal chain fixed to the dashboard

- central airvent made of sponge

- mid to highline computer allowing you to alter volume of owl

etc etc [:eek:)]

Maybe the variable service indicator will be setup from the factory correctly and they'll have a bottle of long life oil in the boot, again fixed to the car by reinforced metal chain....

Or maybe not...

I am glad I got the early car as that bl**dy seat belt chime would really get on my nerves. I hate it when you hire a car in the US as they all have the chiming thing on them there.
