I thought I should shed some light on the VIN today as FBR has planned to soon introduce VIN in Pakistan.
Furthermore, the VIN number is great for the vehicle service industry to make sure you get the right parts and service for the right vehicle. The 17 digit VIN number gives information such as where it was manufactured, vehicle’s year, make and model. There are 17 numbers and letters (17 positions) in a VIN and we can divide them into three groups: World Manufacturer Identifier, Vehicle Descriptor Section, and Vehicle Identifier Section. The very first letter or number of the VIN tells you in what region of the world your vehicle was made. The second letter or number, in combination with the first letter or number in the VIN, tells you in what country the car or truck was made. You may be surprised to know that not all Japanese cars are made in Japan and not all GM cars are made in America and so on. The third number or letter is used by the vehicle manufacturer to identify what kind of vehicle it is. This is where the auto manufacturers enter unique information about the particular vehicle the VIN belongs to. The check digit is the at the 9th position in a VIN, below s very simple mathematical formula. I believe that, implementation of VIN is the need of hour by Pakistani car assemblers and Government should implement and regulate this as soon as possible. I am Civil Engineer by Profession and have love for High Rise Towers and Underground construction.
In addition to Audi, this part numbering system is applicable to the entire Volkswagen Group, which includes brands like Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Porsche, SEAT, Skoda and Volkswagen. You can learn the year of manufacture of any Audi vehicle by looking at the sticker on the driver’s door post and at the imprint on the dashboard. The first three characters ordinarily indicate the vehicle type, engine, or transmission for which the part was developed. Every individual model, body style variation, engine and transmission has its own three-character code. The first digit of the second group of three characters identifies the part as belonging to one of ten Main Groups. Our example’s Subgroup designation means that this part can be found in section 53 of main group 8, which is “moldings, grilles and emblems” (853). A repair kit contains the parts needed to perform a specific repair (a brake pad set, carburetor set, or a brake cylinder repair kit).
The actual part within a Subgroup is identified in the last three digits of the part number. Important: In configuring part locations on a vehicle, left, right, front, or rear is always determined from the driver’s seat facing forward. Parts are sometimes modified or changed (different design, different supplier, and different materials). In our example, the fog light grille is designated by a modified part number shown with the letter K. Normally there is only one modification letter or designation, but a frequently modified part may have two letters. A re-manufactured part is vastly different from one that has been “rebuilt” or “reconditioned.” Re-manufacturing is a complete procedure that makes the part just as good as when it was new—in some cases, by incorporating technical advances that have occurred since its original manufacture, making the re-manufactured part technically superior to its original design.


We hope you now have a much better understanding of the Audi part numbering system and find it useful in your future projects.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) requires all automobile manufacturers who manufacture or imports in to US to issue a unique 17 digit VIN number to all vehicles produced.
Between 1954 and 1981, there was no standard format and VINs varied considerably between manufacturers.
Like I can share few as under Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) can keep track of ownership and law enforcement agencies can identify stolen vehicles or parts. It also helps automobile manufacturers keep track of vehicles for recall, upgrades, or other important information. Match the letter or number below to the first number or letter of your VIN to find out in what region of the world your VIN was made. Anyway, cars and trucks are made in over 80 countries and there are over 600 VIN country codes. Each vehicle maker uses different codes for this so go to the Automobile Manufacturer for your vehicle to get the codes.
Note that this may be different from when it was manufactured, as many automobile manufacturers start to produce next years model this year. To find out which one applies to your VIN, you must look at the 7th letter or number in your VIN. The name of the assembly plant, extra options added to the vehicle, Production Sequence Number and things of that nature. The parts numbering system used by Audi dates back to the 1930s and the original designs created by Ferdinand Porsche.
Understanding Volkswagen Group part numbering system will allow you to reference parts across various  brands and models. In many cases, additional suffix characters are added to indicate special part characteristics such as color, design variations, etc. Once you know these, you’ll see at a glance the type of component or system the part belongs to. For example, in Main Group 8 for Body parts, there are Subgroups for subsystems such as bumpers (807), fenders (821), doors (831 for front and 833 for rear), front seats (881), and so on. Whenever the Subgroup – the fifth and sixth digits of the part number sequence – is 98, it means the part is a repair kit. If the part is available in a left- or a right-side version, the last number in the actual part number sequence is either an even or an odd digit.


Part numbers with modification letters may or may not interchange with previous parts because of the modification, even though they share the same base part number, except for the letter modification. And the alphabetical sequence of the modification letter normally indicates how many modifications or versions have been made.
We’ve kept the info in this article as concise as possible and a lot of info was left out due to length constraints. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount.
The unique 17 digit VIN number contains all letters and numbers except the letters i, o, and q which apparently can be confused with the numbers 1,0, and 9. Under standards set by the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration (NHTSA), every car and light truck model year 1981 or later has a unique 17-digit VIN in a fixed format.
Digits in a car VIN tell specific information, including the vehicle’s year, make, model, country of origin, assembly plant, and more.
The Vehicle History gives you information such as services performed, was it ever in an accident, was it stolen or salvaged, any flood or water damage, is the odometer reading correct, how many owners, vehicle usage (was it a taxi or rental?), lemon history, recalls , was the vehicle totaled or had huge insurance claim? You can see all the codes and find where your car or truck was made by going to Where is my car or truck made.
Each vehicle maker uses different codes for this so go to the Automobile Manufacturer website for your vehicle to find out what the third position in the VIN means for your particular vehicle.
A part number may be as long as fourteen (14) characters if it incorporates one or more of the extra characters.
So in this case the first three digits, 06A, do not designate a particular model, but rather which engine the oil filter was first developed for.
The modification letter or letters, which can be either in the 10th or in the 10th and 11th position of the part number, can also indicate a different version of the part. A part may also be modified before manufacturing at the factory, after it has been assigned a part number. If you have any further questions, please post a comment and we’ll reply as soon as possible. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. The VIN number is also on numerous documents, such as your sales agreement, title, insurance policy, service records, maintenance book, the original window sticker, police reports, and many more. The subscription will also gives you the ability to identify the exact parts that came on your vehicle by entering your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
All parts made for a specific model, body style variation, engine or transmission have the same first three-character part number code. Since many parts can be used on more than one model, the first three digits do not restrict the part to that model alone.
The breakdown below shows how the number is built and how to interpret the five groups of numbers..
