How do you translate the VIN into the Euro version? I used to get a description on the MB site but now it says not enough numbers.

Can you translate mine please, as I want to find out exactly what color my interior is called. It is a 93 400SELL and is recognized by all data but not the russian site.
Here is the vin
WDBGA43E3PA098535
Thx In Advance
