    Not sure if it is related but when I had the windshield replaced on my W222 about 6 months ago the new piece of glass actually came with a subtle Gottlieb Daimler signature sticker on it between the two panes so it could not be removed.

    The VPC (Vehicle Preparation Center) sticker was a quality controlled sticker applied by Mercedes Benz on all incoming cars prior to shipping to dealerships. I know that they were on 1992s, but did not know when they stopped. I guess I can ask Tom Hanson from the Classic Center.

    I'm not sure if it ever stopped. Definitely through the 1990's, and I think through at least mid-2000's...?

    Haven't seen one for many years. I did not note when they went away...

    I have photos showing the decals on W211's through end of USA sales (2009 model year), so it must have been after that.

    Tom Hanson from MBUSA replied that he did not know when they stopped putting the VPC stickers on the car. He did say that it was a long time ago. So thanks GSXR for your input.
