I've been able to figure out most of the body tag but there a few things I still don't get. The first set of numbers highlighted- is this the engine varient? That's what I think the site I looked at said but it listed 6 numbers not 5. And is the second the paint color? Why the 'H'? Once again the site listed an M or F but no H. Also does anyone know what accessories match 588 and 470? Thanks for all the help.

Thanks to all. Not sure about this link though- it says the car was built in '88[:0] Also listing a few options that aren't on the body tag, but they are on the car so maybe not everything shows up on the tag.

some american models need to change the letters in the vin to numbers, and there is a formula, but not sure what it is. Head over to shop forum and search "vin" you find it. It shows my three MB's perfectly.
