But scrambling the serial number makes posting the VIN useless. We can already see it is a 140 and the internal VIN does not give a lot of info if you don't get the data card really.

this is his reply ((Its not a great idea to post VIN numbers here. If you must, please XXXX out the last 5 digits at least.If I would want to, I can change the ownership of your car with the last 4 digits))
thats way
am sorry again about what i say be4:\
No need to be sorry, I don't think people were upset, just trying to explain that the VIN is anyway easily available.

I'm not familiar with the ownership fraud but you can get access to EPC either free of at a very low cost and you can try every VIN of a Mercedes ever built. If one wanted to take over the ownership of my car, they can find the VIN from EPC, I guess the problem would be to find the car but would it help if they knew I posted it? Anyway as said a few times, a lot easier to walk on the street and read the VIN, then you know both the VIN and the car location. I'd still like to understand where in the world does this stealing of the ownership work, must be a country where private property hardly anyway does not exist? How could anyone own a car if it was this easy for someone else to steal it. Do you have any real info or is it just an urban legend?

That VIN is recognised by the Russian site too, you can try it yourself (others have done it already, no need to be afraid).

Option code 363 is not know by the Russian site but it only reads out as "incomplete delivery slip (for SAS and KWS)".

I'm not aware how the AMG stuff was handles at this time, perhaps experts on the relevant sub-forum could help.

Have you asked from the car model specific forum? Experts there may not visit this section too often. Myself I'm not familiar at all with this model and cannot comment really.

Try calling a MB parts department and give them the vin#, you should be able to find out something.

What else would an MB parts department have in addition to what we can read from EPC or even the Russian VIN decoder? Or are you referring to the service history that you might find from the service guys? I understood that this was an imported car and the service history might not be available.
