Design variations of the Serial plate?
« on: 26, September, 2012 - 20:07:29 »
Just a quick query, before the complete strip-down and clean/fix of my new C5 I noticed my Serial number plate was of a different design than I had always seen, with all mention of Hoover removed.

Seen mostly on image searches:

on my C5:

Was there many different designs or just a different of designs between UK models and export models?
I know this is not exactly earth shatteringly important, but just wondered  :D ...

The one you have on your C5 is the correct factory applied version , the other one you have pictured is the after market version someone on the forum made a few years back ..
