Does everyone have this? It is over the back license plate on the overhang. It is a cut out about 4 inches by 2 inches. What is this for? You can not see it except when you sit on the ground and look up. (It looks like a great place for a wasps nest. )

It's been on every car we've seen so far. Don't know what it's for ... (There was a thread a while back and a couple folks had theories, none of which I recall offhand.)

One theory is that European cars would have the license plate light mounted into that hole - a single license plate light. Theory being, perhaps US laws require two license plate lights (for redundancy).

Just a guess, but could explain it. Can one of our European readers shed some light on this?

Nope.. All S2's have it.

Personallly I suspect it's just a tooling/fixation hole when the clams are assembled and sprayed in the factory.

Bye, Arno.
