If it's a VERY, VERY late VIN, I suppose they might have come out of the 
parts bin at the factory, but the chances of that are miniscule if for 
no other reason that the standard sail panels would have been cheaper 
and were probably painted with the rest of the car's panels to match the 

It's only a couple of screws to change them. A monkey could do it or 
could afford to pay some other monkey to do it for them.

If anyone has pics of P6 body panels being painted at the factory, it 
would be interesting to look at them with a magnifying glass and see if 
they painted the sail panels at the same time.
