Hi and thanks for the information! Somebody else appears to have claimed #24 (see 1st page)

We do have a record of your car already, including when it was last sold. Just maybe a bit of confusion over the plaque number.

hows this for proof!!!Image

That's pretty lucky :) and number 9 is unclaimed in the first post. Sounds like a result.

Makes me wonder were my one i have now came from and what number it is? Dont see the reg anywere in the past on the list P866VAP,
The plaque on the ash tray has the number stickers missing were the number sits but has the outline of number 50 there..
Is completely un modified and has 74k on the clocks!
Ive seen a number 50 on the list and its not the same car so im guessing that one had the no50 sticker on it..
Very interesting?????
Also interested in the thing about the number sticker which looks like the whole number is on one sticker in the picture above .. On both the le turbos ive had, the numbers were individual stickers and in this car i have now, there was a small packet with spare numbers and letters in it.. ( altho i only had the letters L E
Hmmm!!

If that stick on label is genuine then you have LE number 9. The 0024 is irrelevant.

If the sticker is missing you will never know.

It is virtually impossible for the number to bleed through that kind of sticker especially as by implication the etched in number has somehow been worn away to an outline of 50. Sometimes you get an outline of the old sticker.

Has anyone else seen an LE sticker with the numbers added as separate digits?

AFAIK the genuine stickers are a single piece, as per the photos above.

That rumor rich is said to be true tho its not proven .. Somewere under the carpet the number should be etched into the floor pan of the car.
Like you said tho, whos ganna rip up the carpet to find out, Could be anywere??? ( ben should know)
Will be uncovering the cali tomorrow so ill double check the plaque thing. Mine did come with a little packet with the gold coloured letters for L E inside it .. infact, i gave some of them to a guy on facebook who had the L E letters missing..
Im sure the gold L E NO** were small stickers stuck on the plaque??
From what im seeing her, it seems im now confused!! Is the whole plaque covered in a sticker??
Very interested in finding this out now LOL

Can't understand where gold enters the equation and I can't understand why it is confusing. The NN number on a stick on label is the LE number and the NNNN etched into the plaque isn't. Simples.

A correct plaque is as per Rich's post on the previous page 4. The sticker is oval and only covers the NNNN number.
