    People have asked on the forum when Roadsters were made, so I started an effort to look through pictures of VDS screens and door labels to track the date of manufacture. This topic will contain a list of what I found, and I will edit it to add more if people give the manufacture date of their Roadster.

    For TEG's records, #834's birthday looks to be 21-January, 2010.

    The door sticker only says January, but 1/21/2010 appears to be the oldest entry with a valid time stamp in the logs. Seems to have had a number of problems during "birth"... a number of 154x errors, VMS restarted on 25-January, etc... Not sure I really wanted to see these, but probably not that unusual given the kind of car that it is.

    Door sticker on #87 is October 2008

    I'll try to remember to look at the VDS screen the next time I take it out....

    500 was the last of the 1.5s. 512 should be an early 2.0, like ours (537).
