    Hi all

    The requested production date for my W205 C200 was earlier this week and I've just got the VIN and engine number so I assume it was built on schedule or is just about to be built in South Africa. However, entering the VIN on this site: Checking VIN for Mercedes-Benz | CARInfo gives a check sum error. I wondered if anyone else could see if they can get the data card for VIN WDD2050422R071548

    Also for others with cars on order I believe entering the VIN into the cargo ID field here: https://www.2wglobal.com/webapps?ur...cean.do?method=getDefaultOceanQuickSearchPage should, when the car is being shipped, give detailed location data for the ship. This site is for Wallenius Wilhelmsen which apparently is the carrier that Mercedes often uses. However, if another carrier is used I understand the name of the ship should be available to the supplying dealer and using the ship’s name internet sites such as www.vesseltracker.com www.vesselfinder.com and www.fleetmon.com can be used to access tracking information. The ships are tracked via Automatic Identification System (AIS) and ground repeaters except when they’re out of range for a few days in the middle of large oceans.

    Many thanks

    That number WDD2050422R071548 is not recognised by the MB EPC system yet meaning the car isn't built or its not yet on the system.

    Many thanks for checking. It looks like I'll need to be patient for a little while longer. It's due in the UK port on 18th May. I wonder how many days/weeks after the date of production it takes for the VIN to become recognised on these systems?

    Hi Toby1, Thanks very much that's really interesting and useful. Did you get the information from a publicly accessible web site? I've just tried Checking VIN for Mercedes-Benz | CARInfo again which still throws an error message for that VIN.

    Once again, many thanks for your help.

    No, definitely not a public site.

    Thanks, I guess that's not too surprising given the level of detail available. However, I wonder if there's a publicly accessible web site containing descriptions for the option codes? The large majority have descriptions or relate to the UK option packages but I don't have any information on D5B, K13, K27, LS1, M20, 1P6 or 5P7. Not too important, I'm just curious to know as much as possible while I'm waiting for the car to arrive.

    A question for Roger Bill or anyone else who knows the answer. Which shipping company did MB use to send your car from South Africa to the UK & which port did it arrive at. I am aware that MB use Wallenius Wilhelmsen but I don't think they use them for this route. Many thanks.

    My car was delivered on schedule last week but unfortunately I didn't discover anything about the shipping company or route.

    Many thanks bob6600
