VIN Decoder
« on: May 13, 2022, 09:49:43 am »
Hi,

My VIN Number shows as incorrect on all decoders, its a Japanese import. I have checked that i am entering it correctly.

Thanks :)

Did you get the VIN off the car or off carjam?

If the decoder you're using is a USA site, it won't work. USA VAG group VINS have a check digit in them that European/ROW Vag cars don't use. This Australian site explains how to decode your VIN for yourself, it's very easy.     https://www.clubvw.org.au/vwreference/vwvin/
