I saw one the other day--- at least it was badged that way. It was parked, so I did a walk-around. Had base model wheels and normal options (leather, ecc, etc), some local school stickers, regular plates and tags, and nothing to give it away as ever registered overseas. Obviously, I was surprised to see it here since I can't imagine it's easy to bring one over, if at all. It would be one thing to see it in DC with diplomat plates, but in TX registered as a TX car? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

We have gotten (in the last few years) a few XC90s and XC70s marked as D5s. Most people wanted the label changed to the right badge but a couple left them as...D5s! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Yannis
