Hey Jeff, thank you for the datacard!

Question for you, I noticed that while my car is a 350, the sales designation in the data card shows 280. When I got insurance for my car, the VIN also showed as 280 in their systems. At first I thought that Farmer's system had an error, but after seeing the data card maybe not.

Any ideas on why the VIN doesn't reflect the right model?

Thank you.

the number 454 in your vin indicate 280/300 not a 350.
Identification number: WDB1714541F180927 1


The 280 and 300 are actually the same model. In my opinion, I think previous owner has rebadged your car to be a 350.

sorry, you have all the evidence...insurance company, datacard...
2 look was not made in a 350 if I am correct

171473 for the 55's
171445 for the 200K
171442 for the 200K
171454 for the 280 / 300
171458 for the 350
171456 for the 350

2010 SLK-300 Special Edition (USA "Diamond White Edition", ROW "2LOOK Edition")

he put a Kleemann ecu tune and headers so he is back to where a 350 might be but sounds great!
