In 2016, the tooling for the Type 181 was changed while the Volkswagen 5-Pack was being produced. In the middle of the production run, the Type 181’s bumpers were made to be part of the base; due to that, it is possible to find two variants of the pack, where the Type 181 has either metal or plastic bumpers.
