Question - I ran the decoder from the link a few pages back in this thread and it came back with several versions or links with two for North America - not sure if both are for the same car or if cars shipped to different countries can have the same VIN number...
How do I know which one is correct?
MY VIN is WDBJH82j52x063797 for a 2002 E320 4 Matic Wagon color is Silver
While I am asking is there any place I can get a VMI on this same car to get a better service history?
So you were too lazy to try those different links to compare the results?
There is only one unique VIN, the same one cannot appear at different markets (also taking into account the internal VIN that you can pull for a US car).
This is from the "Japanese" link, see how this car has the US market option code 494. You get the same datacard from each link obviously.
