    I see when you are talking about your cars you refer to them as W then the numbers. What does this refer to and how do i know what mine is?

    The VIN number starts with WDBxxx. The xxx is the model code.

    Your car is a W202.

    Completely off-topic, I know, but talking of Columbo did you catch the news this week that his daughter has petitioned Los Angeles Superior Court to approve conservatorship of Peter Falk who is suffering from Alzheimer's and apparently can no longer care for himself? Very sad.

    A stands for "Avoid"



    The coupes only have the C designation when they are only available as a coupe i think, my 280ce is still a W114.
