Anyone check VIN for me?

Preferably within an hour or two! My father is interested in this car coming up at auction tomorrow and would like to know if it has heated front seats. And confirm it has full leather?

It is a new C Class Sport model: WDD2040082A089810

I tried the Mercedes Russia VIN decoder but it doesn't do cars as new as this.

Many Thanks if anyone can help

I think you wrote down the VIN incorrectly. All Mercedes VINs start with WDB. Try WDB... on the Russian website.

These do actually start WDD. I found that out when I did check another car at my MB dealer a month or two ago.

Right, all my MBs have an internal VIN starting with WDD, this is for current models. This one is too new for the Russian site.

Yup, it's just too new. It's too new for my WIS, as well (not the latest version, admittedly).

Time for an update. The build date was from end of October, 2007 (I actually thought the Russian site had cars of this age but at least this one was not there, or is it because it is a RHD car?).

WIS is so horrible to install, I'll stick with what I have until it starts to become an issue.

RHD's are usually no problem, I'm currently looking for another R129 here in the UK and they always show up ok on Merc Russia's VIN site- which is great! I believe it seems if the car's are about 3 yrs old or more they show up. Not sure how it works and why it doesn't show up to date cars.




I've been fixed up and thank you all for your help.

Thanks for the correction to what I thought, fellas.

Cheers.
