Limited edition model name

Wondering why German market multivans have white star, red star, blue star names on them rather than WeiB stern,rot stern,Blau stern.

Yeah considering they didn't market them that much in English speaking countries. But then Rot Stern doesn't sound that appealing ! Why they didn't make right hand drive versions is puzzling aswell.

...or "Magnum" or "Coach" for that matter.

Why do the LLE have badges that read "Limited Last Edition"

Well working on the basis that over used Plasticine finishes up just one colour usually duck poo green, I have always been of the opinion that eventually the whole world will finish up using English as their first language.

Although considering the preponderance on the part of the English to mimic the cultures of other sometimes more apparently successful cultures I was not surprised to see that Chinese as a second language is the done thing for many academics and prospective high flyers in the world.

Whatever the reason it wouldn't be done if there weren't a few bob in it somewhere. :wink:
