I am unable to decode it. From the posts what I get is GTX has VIN MAH178636 but not 820.
Sorry i couldn't find any details for 178636 and 178820. Is there is any other number embossed on the chassis ?

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.
