VIN check - data


I have asked a few places for the price of a dipped beam bulb, I gave them my registration number and they have quoted approx £10, which indicates non-xenon. I have now found out, after damage to the headlight, that I have xenon headlights.

I have used the VIN check and this is the information I have received back from 2 sites

Site 1 - ?????? datacard
609*- Unknown
618*- Unknown

Site 2 - Mercedes-Benz Club Russia | Mercedes-Benz / VIN
600 - headlamp wiper/washer (с 01.08.1971)
609 - Unknown code
618 - halogen lamp unit with high beam/low beam/fog light (r.h. traffic) (с 01.04.1970)
619 - halogen lamp unit with high beam/low beam fog light and headlamps and fog lamps or additional high beam, amber; asymmetrical headlamps for l.h. traffic, and rear turn signal lamps, orange, for Australia, Italy, Great Britain xenonheadlight omitted (с 01.06.1995)

One site seems to say I have xenons (not sure why discountinued) and the other looks as though I do not.

I would like to know where UK dealers would get their information from? Can this information be updated to reflect the actual spec of the car?

Which "2004 270CDI" is the car?

The Russian site should be accurate for codes but the descriptions may be old or confusing.

For a 203 codes 600/609/618 relate to xenons (headlamp cleaning, RHD xenons including cornering illumination).
