Re: Where's the label?
The lable on my '87CSTQ was on the cover over the radiator. It fell off
before I moved to CA about 5 years ago but since ALL north american Audis
since about '84 or before are 50 state cars I did not think it would be a
problem. Well they hit me for $300 and said I would get it back in the
mail after they got a letter from Audi. Audi said they sent the letter
but the lovely state of CA said they never got it so I never got my $300
back. Lots of phone calls later, CA finaly admitted that, yes the car
did meet CA specs but, no they don't ever give the money back like they
say they will. Nice state.
Last year I got a 93 S4 in MA and brought it back to CA. It had been hit
in the front so I had to replace the hood. The sticker is on the hood in
the '93s so I made sure I removed the old sticker to put on the new
hood. No problem.
If your sticker is missing, you can go to an Audi dealer and they will
order you a new one for about $45. They need to see the car to order it
and put it on the car when it comes in. I would just go to a junk yard
and try to get one off of another car.
'93 S4 (for sale)
