VIN Calculator
 
1 Attachment(s)
Ok, just was bored and was trying to work out the codes for the vin numbers...
Most of this was taken from insanesVL article (so blame him for any mistakes :D).

Give it a test, it should report back most of the info about your VL

Use this plate to get the numbers from (see attached image):

Thats pretty cool! It says its a non turbo isnt yours turbo?

jordy 27-03-04 23:38

"Luxury" <--- like that, no A in there

KILLAB 28-03-04 01:33

that id plate could be from his old one maybe?

furryfrog 28-03-04 01:41

carcrazy, thats my VIN in the picture :)

Denied 28-03-04 03:13

also, it should be entered in the format '8K196HL284410' without spaces etc.

VLTWhite1 28-03-04 09:45

Cool. Now all we need is one for the Body & Option plate on the lower left of your photo. I've got the codes if you really want to get carried away.

LAGWAGN 28-03-04 12:45

Nice one platinum
I only got one error, it wouldnt tell me that my car is a wagon..
oh well good stuff

ijd 28-03-04 20:29

It works good. It says my car is a SL. I thought it was a exec, well it has exec badges.

Antho 29-03-04 19:02

an exec is the same as an SL, just with air con and pwr steering as standard and exec badges

Denied 17-04-04 21:30

On my VIN plate I have an 'L' at the end of the VIN number, does anyone know what that stands for?

VLTWhite1 19-04-04 00:21

Model Program VL funnily enough.

Denied 19-04-04 00:37

ok, thought it might have been a HDT thing as my SL doesn't have it

aus880 23-04-04 07:52

My '87 series II Calais turbo comes back as;

Division: Holden
Luxury Level: ERROR - should be VK, VL or VX
Body Shape:: Sedan
Engine: 3.0ET (Turbo)
Year: ERROR - should be F, G or H
Plant: ERROR - should be J or L and between 1 and 9
Serial Number: 44515

So some probs do exist in the calculator. great idea though to have this

jordy 24-04-04 19:05

Anyone tried a Wagon VIN in it - 35 in the Body Style keeps coming up with "error must be 19 or 35"...

88BERLINA 12-05-04 14:43
