    Does anyone (read bradc/nz crew ;) ) know what plates numbers were put on what years cars? In that i have a chassis number and want to find out what year the car is.

    The chassis number is ec5w-0200256 (its a half cut), which i guess either means it is a very early model or a very late model?

    thanks in anticipation

    That chassis number is about 500 before mine.

    Mine is late 98 (first of the FL) so I would say you have a 98 model :D

    Hey Guys,

    Punch the Vin into CAPS and it will tell you the manufacturing date.

    But being a 02 number, it would be a Facelift, probably a mid 98 build (Caps not on this PC so I cant look it up)

    Regards

    Gavin

    If it's got a 2 I'm pretty sure it's facelift. Working purely off the cars I've bought, I think the final series from mid-2000 had a 5 where the 2 is.

    Which would make it no. 256 of the facelifts...

    So Dion,

    Can we pry into knowing what you are picking up a half cut for?

    Regards

    yep, anything starting with 02,03,04,05 is a facelift.

    Your car must be close to mine Mark, mine is 0200998

    so are you getting the entire engine and gearbox too?

    Went and had a look at it with Gilly the other day, was indeed a facelift, white with black interior, but for those playing at home, it was auto :eek:

    It does have a 'carbon fibre' centre console though......

    This sounds interesting, do you own the front cut or is it just at a wrecker somewhere?
