My 2000 Golf had a 20V turbo ensignia on it. My 337 has a 1.8T badge. I don't know which is the newer of the two.

Re: ??? Why they are different??? (brownie)

I've talked to a bunch of owners about this issue and it seems that the cars that were built in March/April have the "older" 20v Turbo cover on the engine. The cars built in May or later (like mine) have the "newer" 1.8t cover on them. VW just used the leftover 20v covers that they had in the parts bin until they ran out, then started with the new ones. My dealer had a couple of 2003 GTI's that just came in and they all had to 1.8t cover on them.

The first batch of 337's came with the 20V Turbo engine cover while the second batch came with the 1.8T cover! So, basically the 20v Turbo engine cover 337's was the early production 337!
Lucky me I have the early production 337! Yeehaw. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
