    Vehicle Identification Plate



    1. The top number is designated to the exact date that the car was built.
    2. Vehicle Identification Number.
    3. Applied Model - Indicates exactly what car you have, and can be deciphered by
    using the key above.
    4. Option code, denotes what Options that were taken when the car was in
    production.

    5. Trim Code, this indicates type and colour of cloth and interior styling.
    6. Engine Type, this indicates the engine number and what engine it is i.e. EJ20.
    7. Colour Code, as it say's the specific paint code for the colour of your car.
    8. Transmission Type, indicates the gearbox/transmission number and what type
    of gearbox is fitted.

    Closest link I could find:

    Flex - i on same boat as you there - wondering what the option codes mean

    perhaps with the scoobies here we could start a database to determine excatly what the codes mean. Maybe the next scooby meet, members could compare ?
