VIN Number for 2000 /01 model S class

Hi all, we are currently looking for a valid vin number for the older shape S class. The reason behind this is we want to purchase 2 rear roof vanity mirrors, MB parts in london can get them but need a valid VIN number to look up the actual part numbers, if anyone can help it would be very much appreciated...

Usually when they want a vin, they either need it for color or there are more than one available due to a production change, Your vin should show on any service invoice, and on the dash plaque

Anyone else notice a rash of VIN requests recently? Hopefully these aren't being used for the old cloned car routine.

BTW, what's the MB policy regarding dual VINs that appear on opposite sides of the globe (or US and Mexico for that matter)? Aside from warrantee work, do they really care?

The vin #s are not duplicated, since manufacturers have to use them for the manufacturing certificate. I know we created serial #s for products that were destroyed in accelerated life and other tests.
