What the label says is what you get in VDO product packages
Even high-performing products need protection
We put a lot of passion and experience into the development of our products, so we don’t take kindly to inferior quality being sold with our name on the package!
We affix a two-stage security label to each product package, so you know 100% that it’s an original product in there.
Stage 1: the tesa PrioSpot®
The first stage of the security label is the tesa PrioSpot®. This anti-counterfeiting technology with various testing and security features offers maximum protection and allows the unambiguous identification of imitations.
Every PrioSpot® has a unique code that contains the last four digits of the MAPP code (Manufacturers Against Product Piracy) and shines with iridescent rainbow colours under illumination.
The tesa Priospot® is a refinement of the tesa Holospot®. The Holospot® is still available on the market, however, and continues to provide maximum security.
Stage 2: MAPP code
We also achieve maximum security by adding a data matrix code called a MAPP code. The last characters of this code are also represented in the Holospot® or PrioSpot®.
You can easily check the code by entering it manually on this page. You will see right away whether you have a genuine Continental part.
Enter the second line of the MAPP code without the preceding “(21)” in the following field.
