I dont know if any of you have noticed. VW has went crazy stamping, etching, labeling almost every single part of this car with the Vin number. If you look inside the wheel, on the headlamps, on the intake, even the dipstick as the vin number.
The dipstick and intake manifold has the VIN number etched by HAND!
Can you imagine the extra manpower costs...

it's vw's new way of identifying every car in case something or the whole car gets stolen and gets sold piece by piece, VW did this because insurance companies were just fed up of all thefts occuring to vw's. that is why insurance is very expensive compared to other cars. By doing this, vw has conviced the insurance companies to lower their rates. i heard there are over 60 places that no one will even consider looking that have the vin number stuck onto it.
