That one does not seem to be in the database. Not uncommon with RHD cars.

RE: Benz VIN number

Hi Friends,

Now I am confused, especially in my case of VIN # WDB1704472F110533 - what does the F represent. I bought this 'baby' SLK230 Komp from a dealer in Kuala Lumpur who has imported it from Japan as a used car. I am told this is a 2000 model. I hv been trying to get the manufacturer's detail on the car to no avail. Car Eng # 11197322054557. Anyone can help? Much obliged n thanks..[8D]

Try this;
http://www.benzworld.org/modelguide/

The letter in you VIN is the plant where it was
produced (in your case, Bremen).
I did not get the correct prodution year
from that lookup for my own car, but YMMV.

If you try this one;
http://www.mbclub.ru/mb/vin/index.html?lng=eng
(and tick off "full version"), you will get
that it is produced in 1998 but as a 1999 model,
at plant 67, which perhaps is Bremen.

Where did you get that information? Every
reference I got to VIN (US and non-US),
tells me that the F is the assembly plant (Bremen).

US;
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercedes-Benz_VIN_codes
http://www.mbcoupes.com/vinnumbers/vinnumbers.htm

Non-US (just an example);
