This is getting silly now. First the Ford logo has changed, then the Volvo logo and now the Volkswagen logo is different.
When I was a kid, I used to listen to the Beastie Boys who would wear a large Volkswagen logo around their neck that was taken from a VW Camper van. This meant we used to see the Volkswagen logo ALL THE TIME and I could always remember this logo off the top of my head because of it. Now the Volkswagen logo has a gap between the V and the W and I am absolutely certain that that gap was never there. But again, if you research the logo, it appears to have always been there.
