Bit of an odd one here

Was talking about the QQ with a guy who works at Nissan & he was adamant that as each car was going down the line it was already "spoken for" ie "Mr Bloggs, Manchester"......."export to somewhere" etc..
As such the management could keep an eye on each car if needed & pay closer attention to certain one's & as such let other cars go with less attention to say... body panel fit.
Motability was mentioned of course as it seems they are the biggest single customer for the QQ.

Anybody heard of this before ?
Old wives tale ?
Some truth in it but doesn't work like this ?

Not intending to pursue this but was wondering if any of the members had heard any stories/rumours  of this kind ?

It's been a while since I heard a decent conspiracy theory to "get my teeth into"

There are of course some strange things that do go on at Washington (as I suppose in all big factories)

So......................... Nonsense ................. or .......... Something in it ?

Dick.

true , we went on the factory tour here as a club meet , great day lots of interesting stuff learned 

each car on the line has a sheet on it which tells them whos car it is and what spec ect 

i always though cars were made in batches ie teknas then acentas ect but on the line 1 car will be a tekna for me the next an acenta for joe bloggs , the next an n-tec ect , 

its amazing to see the robots picking up the correct model parts from different areas and dropping them into the production line to suit the cars order no and spec required 

as for letting some go with less attention , i would say thats rubbish , every car we saw got the same attention , there a bay where cars are pulled off at random and checked for things like alignment ect , these checks have to be done by an independent quality control company with no affiliation to nissan so no car would be allowed out if a fault was spotted  

we may be visiting there again this year if there is enough interest but there only running the juke line for tours now but thats just the last hour of the tour
