Ok rough night and i'm not thinking straight :drunken:

If you look at the m-plate decoder in my signature, which part of it is the I.D. No. that i need to input?

I know, i'll look again later when i've woken up........... :roll:

Last digits on the bottom right fella...

Just to say I've just spoken to the Wolfsburg Museum as I ordered my certificate over 6 weeks ago, firstly it seems their email address has changed and also the phone number (After listening to the recorded message a few times I managed to get some use out of the broken German I know and right the correct number down....)

It seems they have a large amount of requests at the moment and could be another 4-6 weeks before any get shipped.

Phone number if anyone else needs it is

Just out of interest when did you apply for yours.

They are very quick to take payment. :D

Don't suppose there is anyone in the UK that can do a replica Chassis plate and M plate?

Brill my certificate turned up yesterday, so they must be working through the back log, only a little over a month.

confirms a few things and answers a couple of questions.

But shows 2 unkown codes which is odd 007 and 018.

Oh well for its age i'd expect a few records to be missing :D

Anyone know if some does repro plates now

Hi ya

Can you confirm if they need all of the information. The engine I have is certainly not the original and doesn't have a number on it. Also by model do they mean Kombi or 211?


Many thanks

As well as a Birth cert from VW is it possible to find out for a UK delivered bus which dealer it was first delivered to and sold from :?:

I recently got a birth certificate - took about 3-4 weeks - fair enough

The bus had no m plate. It is a nice document but having looked at it if you do have an m plate I dont think its worth €50.

I'm not going to order one for another bus I have.

The certificate gave no indication of the engine number supplied with it either - which for this amount of money seems wrong?

Also I have two engines of the same year with it and would not know which is original, if at all.

How do you find out matching numbers engine?

I read somewhere on this forum that they wont now give out the engine number due to data protection act :? but if you give them an engine number they will confirm whether it corresponds with their records. Hope that helps
