How To Decode a VIN  Prior to understanding how VIN decoding works, it is important to know what it is all about. Is it possible that one of you can see which version and what options a car have when you have a Chassisnumber \ VIN? The VIN is a strictly defined format, part of which are specified by the government (at least in the US it is).
VIN includes model and series, model year and country of manufacture, engine type, transmission type (in the series designation), serial number, assembly plant.

Brian Chang15-Feb-2008 13:33I have no other information on the 10th digit and therefore have no idea what year "Z" would be. 29-Oct-2007 07:26Grateful if you can explain why Japanese Automobile Manufacturers are now using character "Z" as the 10th digit in VIN Code.

Anyone have info on how to decode an Elise VIN number, or what can be determined by the public from the number? There are other bits to the information that i couldn't be bothered adding, but they're the mostly relevant ones. Not sure, as i've seen 07 exige 's with 3000 + serial numbers, it could be worldwide numbers, or all exige's, all elise's.
05 Lotus Elise - Chrome Orange - No Touring - No LSS - No Hardtop - Lotus Driving Lights - Lotus "Chin Guards" - plain and simple. So it must include more than one models, unless they did sell more than 3000 2007 Exige S 220s worldwide ?
I guess the serial number increases independently from the 13-digit model identifier ahead of it!


Hence Lotus has ideally for every model, every year a count of at least 240*9999 cars to serialize! Obviously that's far too many cars for Lotus to produce, still it's a nice way to allow serial numbers to develop without a problem! Accounts are penalized for Community Guidelines violations and serious or repeated violations can lead to account termination. The formal VIN started in 1981 since before that there were different formats used by different manufacturers. The standardization of the numbers was done to get rid of chances of similar VIN’s appearing.
The digits that are found on car VIN indicate the year the vehicle was manufactured, assembly point, country of origin, model as well as other important details that will prove helpful in its identification.
