VIN decoder for MB & AMG toys

2 posts in this topic

In a fit of boredom while waiting for some take away Asian food, I went web surfing for a build code description site for my C63.

I found this instead: http://www.mercedesmedic.com/decode/ and of the 2x options for VIN checking, found OPTION 2 to be the best.

Why? Option 1 identified my ML500 as a GL and gave no information, whereas option 2 gave me everything. :)

So, bearing in mind that YMMV, have a go...


I did find that compared to the VME information given to me by the dealer for the C63 - the site provided more information for more codes (and some had different descriptions!). ohmy.gif

That's because it's an OZ market car, the Germans know you guys don't know what a real performance car is, so they just stick ML500 badges on a GL knowing you won't be able to tell the difference.

That Passat you had would have been a 2.0 TDi over here.
