See your owner's manual. VIN is stamped to the shell at the floor in front of the passenger seat.

If this looks genuine, perhaps the car has been fixed from an accident and got a different roof. Bumper can be from a non-Parktronic car etc.

It is possible. If you ask me, I would say it is not common and does not make sense. Did you check the stamped VIN?

It is written in the data card, build date from 2002 but 2003 model year (in MB factory terms), explained by 803.

DB, the car left the production line in 2001. Regardless of when it was first licenced. 10th digit.

No, the tenth digit only works for US (NA) VINs.

1A in this VIN means it is a LHD car, produced in Sindelfingen.
