Hi,

I had a doubt. How to decipher the VIN no. for German cars which are built pre 2010, i.e. 2009, 2008 etc? Any pointers?

Cheers

Ronnie

This is what I got from the dealer,

VIN : MA3FLEB1S00158799 *MC

Is that enough? I couldn't get chasis number yet.

Hi Wildon, need your help in decoding the VIN tmbbeg3t8aa302110 (Skoda superb 2010 Elegance). I need to check if this is TDI CR or PD and if it is genuinely an elegance. I am considering it for a second hand purchase. Thanks in advance

Hi Wildon,

After going through a lot of other threads, I think that the Skoda Dealer has sold me an Ambition variant of Skoda Rapid while I paid for Ambition Plus.
I think the dealer just added an ICE and sold it, as I dont have the chrome trims nor the Electrically adjustable OVRMs.

There was this other thread where-in you send a detailed car report with equipment list. Could you please help me generate that.

My Car VIN : TMBBLGNA7CG026827

My Cousin's VIN where in he has the above said features : TMBBLCNA4DG012796

Both these would help me compare the equipment levels.

Hi Wildon,

Would be much obliged if you could please help in deciphering the following VIN number :

MA3EWDE1S00508342

The vehicle is a Maruti Wagon R Vxi with ABS.
I took delivery just three days ago but was surprised to see the numbers "12" on the car glasses which indicates a 2012 production. Sadly, I only noticed this yesterday.
Your prompt reply would be much appreciated.

Kind Regards,
SS

Hi Wildon,

Sorry I forgot to mention the last two letters which are :
*AD

The VIN should therefore read:
MA3EWDE1S00508342*AD

Looking at previous posts I figure this to mean Jan 2013 but please confirm.

Kind Regards,
SS
