This was usual for Japan, so "made for J" would be correct http://www.nakazawa-office.com/officeinc_myvol07.html
The bike rack was from the offficial Volkswagen extra option range. But not available in Japan. Only here. Holy sh*t, what a drama it had been, to pack and send it. Bulky and sharp-edged was it, and the cardboard box had to be selfmade, because the original was useless weak. Damn it!

Seems like the admins on this site don't all agree on criterias for the "made for"-tag: /vehicle.php?id=502000 Still not convinced this is a "made for" as the main difference is that it is built for left-hand driving.

RHD was/is not mandatory in Japan. Some fans of foreign brands are ordering their cars as LHD. They think, they are more stylish.

Plus the (largely unknown) fact, that LHD- versions are generally better cars than the RHD-variety (except origin British or Japanese cars). A friend, who was a prototyp-developing-engineer at VW, has explained that: they plan, create and build mockups and prototypes as LHD. For the RHD-version they don't start again, they take a ready prototype and modify it, that it fits sooner or later. So at those there's very likely, that you'll find makeshifts, auxiliary-solutions and even cobblework.
The K 70 is a good example. It's a terrible concotion as RHD, absolute crap :/
