Don't know if they have one. I haven't found anything, and no-one else has said anything about this?!

Hi

You could try contacting Toyota or a friendly dealer to see if they will tell you.

well this is important info. we wouldnt like heedshot to go and waste ££'s on a metal plate with a random number on. tbh saying the last 3 digits on a build sticker is a bit of a stab in the dark. if it was that important they would have made a plate with the limited edition number somewhere a bit more visible eg the honda civic type r's have there number on a plate near the gear lever and them things are 10 a penny

it was assembled here in the UK, The compressor was part of a "kit"

it wasn't technically a special edition version, they were just made in limited numbers to end the run of production of the t-sport model. It would probably be best asking someone in merlin international if they applied any Badge numbers to them.

If it was limited spec it would have had a visible plate to identify it, as leebo said you cant go off the chassis number plate, also if someones number is 408 how would it work when the specific 200 models were put together here? why would they set someones number as 408 when another persons is something like 100?

But you never know i would say instead of toyota ask the company who put them together :thumbsup:

I work at Burnaston and I remember seeing about 200+ brand new unregistered TTE Compressors lined up in the yard round the back.

I'm not sure where they had the Superchargers fitted but I reckon they would have just left the Burnaston production line as normal T-Sports,been modified somewhere in the UK then returned to the yard for registering and shipping. Wish i'd taken a picture now!

Edit..Thanks just looked up Merlin thanks Farhanali I didn't know they were assembled there! :thumbsup:
