      2012 EOS Executive
      07-20-2020 11:01 AM #1
      This must sound like a dumb question but I bought a used 2012 Eos Executive 2.0 TSi The badge on the trunk says Executive and that is how it was sold, but I am sorting it out and found some annomalies:

      1. It has 17" wheels and the tire placard says 17" tires
      2. It is a 4-cylinder and has a 12V battery in the engine bay and does not appear to have two 6V batteries in the trunk
      3. It has most of the premium upgrades but there is no backup camera
      4. When i checked the VIN: WVWFW7AH0CV002487, it came back as a LUX.
      5. Mfg date is Mar 2011. Could the spec for an Executive have been upgraded to 18" wheels w/backup camera after mine was built? Or did someone rebadge it?

      Any help would be appreciated.
