This is the highest honour that Volkswagen can bestow on a dealer for services to the Volkswagen brand in 2014. Brady's previously won a Gold Pin award in 2010.

The ceremony, attended by delegates from all over the world, presented the Diamond Pin awards to representatives from the United Kingdom, Germany, China, USA and South Africa among other countries.
