PM UK-C200 with the VIN and he should be able to pull the data card for you.

BTW, welcome to SlkWorld.com

Please await further instructions from Jbanks15 :)

There is no VIN that starts out WDB902, The 902 designates the chassis and there's no such chassis.
There's VIN number and then there's Ext. VIN. The VIN does start WDB but 171 or 170 should follow. You need to tell us the Ext. VIN.

The external VIN is used by other countries besides the US/Canada. As an example an R 63 would have a VIN start 4JG251177 or US/Canada Vin Start 4JGB77.
My datasheet from John lists what we (U.S.) would call the VIN under Ext. VIN. Would that be because he uses's a Euro based tool to look 'em up so they're reversed?

Just a reminder that by using the EPC from Mercedes, anyone can put in a VIN, then click "data card," and pull up all this great information, including the very date the car was made.

I think it's fun to subscribe and play around with. I never seem to make it work on Mac though, I have to go into windows.

and the EPC is free to US addresses. As suggested in several posts, finish your profile so we know where you are and whether the EPC is going to be free to you. I frankly see no reason to use the Russian site if you are a US resident because you can't get better than the MBUSA site - straight from the horse's mouth so to speak.

AFAAIK you can't buy parts off the EPC as a private customer like us. For one thing, parts prices are not available to us there. The credit card is used to verify that you have a US billing address. There is no charge and your card will not be charged. I've been using it for a year - it's a wonderful resource.
