It's probably also the way it's printed out.

I print everything there is; that's the beauty of EPC, which by the way is available for free to most folks in North America.

I have the paid subscription that allows me to view VINs from all over the globe, as I own three Euro vehicles, so I have to shop for parts that are not available here in the US.

Not everyone has the time to sign-up for EPC, so folks like Koenigstiger and myself run VINs for those who ask.

Could you post the info you got? I would have expected a window sticker from MBUSA instead of a data card but if you say the print is mostly in German language, it can't be the window sticker.

PS. from another Daimler source:
231 is GARAGE DOOR OPENER
349 is PRE-EQUIPMENT FOR EMERGENCY CALL SYSTEM "E-CALL"

Could you do Wddgf4hbd9cr235478 for me? It is minimal equipment probably originally a loaner for one of the local dealers.

Check the VIN again, there are 18 characters when there should be 17.

Sorry about that. I threw an extra d after the b in the middle of that. I am not sure if I can't read or can't type. (or both)
Thank you very much for your reply.

Hi Vailfanatic:
Thank you very much for the information. This is the 6th Mercedes I've owned since 1981 and is easily the most fun to drive. (torquey engine and very precise steering) Most of them I put more than 200k miles except for a 1985 that seemed to have more then typical problems. The 1987 SDL was the best road cruiser. The c250 is the first non diesel.

Thanks again for the information.

Decode please

Hello,

My VIN;

WDD2211861A303395

It's got a specific factory option 001 so I was told, it's long wheel base and instead of rear mirrors it has gimble lights.

Thanks very much!

Regards,

Bret

Rather interesting car to run; it says there's still a production order out for this vehicle when it was delivered four years ago!
