My new car's vin is WBAPR96040N******
The info you found John seems correct for my vehicle except for model year.
- PR96 is the model number
- 0 means that it has got seat belts
- 4 is just the check digit
- 0 however does not make sense as there is no model year identifier with number 0 or letter O
- N so it is a South African made car... I was hoping it was Germany...too bad.
On the shipping details, it also said that it was loaded at Durban on 03/06/09 so i guess I can be very certain that it is made in South Africa.
So I guess it is true that all E90 sedans for Australian markets are all made in South Africa then.
