I have a 2015 C 250 AMG line. I assume it is a W205. I notice on the data label on the door jam and in the logbook the 'Type' is given as 204.

Is this normal? I hope!
 
What are the first 3 numbers from the VIN?
 
Can't you tell by looking? They look pretty drastically different inside and out.

If it looks like this, it's a W204:

If it looks like this, it's a W205:

Whitenemesis. that would be great.

Is it normal for the type to be designated 204 on the door label?

Thanks

It's not uncommon for the V5 to have an error, after all it's human input. The door plate is more unusual.

Note SA code F205 - models eries 205

I've got 204 somewhere on my 205.
Might be the on the V5.
 
I find the datacards fascinating with the various bits the decide to list. Like the fact it has to detail a left half axle AND a right half axle. Like it could come with one or the other. Mine datacard has something similar.

I'd love to know exactly what this bit refers to:

03A OIL OFFSET AMOUNT +300 ML OIL
 
Is the delivery date the date it was built or the date it arrived at the dealership?
I know it sounds like a stupid question but cars I've had before have had build date and no mention of the delivery date..
 
This is great information, thank you.

A few things there I didn't know I had.

502 3 YEARS OF MAP UPDATES FREE OF CHARGE is a good one. I will remind the dealer at the next service
 
Delivery date is the date the car left the production line.
