I snapped some pics of these numbers.
I am still a little confused about which exact 17 digits I need to submit to the DMV as my official "VIN"?
Thanks in advance,
The first picture is showing the Vin-plate.
Vin = 113.042-10-012002 = Chassisnumber
The second picture is the dataplate.
493 is SA-Code = H.D. HEAT EXCHANGER U.S. VERSION
508 is SA-code = OUTSIDE REAR VIEW MIRROR, LEFT, LOOSE
717G = paintcode for papyros white + G stands for Glasurit and counts for the lower body
SECOND 717 G = paintcode for the upper bodypart c.q. (metal)roof
6 is an additional paintcode
113042 is the type bodyserie ( ic 230 SL )
10 stands for LHD and manual gearbox
7 = delivered to the US
6 additional code meaning unknown to me.
00344 = the productionnumber
03299 = the bodynumber from that buildingyear
NOTE: on the dataplate there are only those SA-Codes mentioned, for which the body had to be prepared; For SA-codes which not needed any bodypreparation those are only mentioned on the datacard (for example an ivory steeringwheel).
