Hi Eric, if you have a bit of free time, could you kindly decipher a VIN for me. VIN is: WDB1400432A126716. I did it on another link posted here and it told me my vehicle was manufactured in 1976. It is in fact a 93 (but could be 92?) 400SEL. But if I'm right, that was the year that the SELs were renamed S-class (so the 400SEL was renamed S420L). I'm just a little bit confused as to model I do indeed have (please don't get angry!!!!!).

I've just bought a 96 S320 also, and on speaking to the mechanic, to book it in for diagnostics, he advised (from the VIN) that it was a 97. I'll post that VIN also, only if you've got some spare time to have a look at it. All help here is greatly appreciated.

I always have time for Benzworld, so here is the first car and it is a 93 400SEL;

Wow. How very cool. Thank you so much Eric. The other VIN is: WDB1400322A327415. The mechanic said it's a 97, but has 96 on the rego sticker.

This one is also very "blue" and wondered if the paint was original, as it's got a pearl in it, it's blue turning to a shade of purple - almost chameleon like. I like it.

Have a fabulous day.

Vicki

Thank you SO much Eric. Is 524 (paintwork - preservation) the colour (paint) code?

No that is preservation, 366 is the colour;
