||L A Baldwin: I own a 1995 euroVan Camper. This (mine, at least) is nota grey market vehicle. I am the 2nd owner, and know the first. I have the invoice from original sale. Because this started as a long wheel base commercial van in Germany, and was sent to Winnebago for conversion, it could be registered either as a VW or as a Winnebago, following the curious customs of the DMW in your area. While it is possible that you have landed a grey market vehicle, it is not inevitable. The US market got a single engine/transmission format (ACU engine, 02G transmission, I think) This was indeed, the last year for which a manual transmission was offered. I don't know about the automatics, and don't want to. You could check with a VW dealer to see if your VIN falls within those sold as US models. Grey market may mean nothing, or a disaster. Any trouble buying replacement parts? I think the lighting and glass differences are non-issues. I'd personally love the AWD model, but that's another issue. It is not clear to me that you have an inevitable problem unless if you got it registered, unless you need parts or service and VWOA turns its back on you. The diesels get about 27-28 mpg, though.
