appologies for my ignorance guys but how do I find out the number of my mk2 rs, always wondered what this is

Thanks
From what I read, they`re not the genuine numbers. They`re just issued in order as requested. Someone on here said individual cars weren`t numbered by Ford...that`s why I never bothered plus the rip off charge.

They're not just randomly issued, he has production numbers from when built & applied the corresponding build number to it, so yes, not official but out of all the one's people have got, he hasn't got any mixed up with dates of production etc, so it is a good indication of what number build your car was. :yep:

Also, when he started, many of us (me included) got this number free, until he realised he can make money out of it! :bleh:

You can calculate the range for numbers form the production volumes, but not the order in which the cars were built on any given day.

I wrote a spreadsheet to do it, all you have to do then is not issue the same number twice.

True but he also tells you what date the car came off the production line from the vin number, as far as i know, nobody has had any incorrect info regarding this.

Are you sure it's 35 euros for him to supply you just the number? Is there not a mis-understanding? As that sounds like the price including the plaque to me.

With banter intended :lol: £30 is not a lot of money to spend on a twenty plus grand car, don't be so tight :lol:

Indeed - cut & paste from email was " one plaque is 35 Euro, two for the same car are 50"
