I have just read the "Syncro vs Toyota vs Mitsubishi" article  on Syncro Australia

Syncro Australia article

....."That said, the Syncro had a non-standard distributor water exclusion device - part number Glad Bag Three Oh - zip-clipped to its high tension leads. We're not sure what the troops in Wolfsburg would make of that little item, but it does suggest that the electrics could do with some water protection."

Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.
