I would be very pleased to get any explanation about the 6th letter of my new ECU vin (SAR RF S
According to Rimmerbros :
The 6th letter represents the Class of vehicle eg:
C = 200 BRM
D = Streetwise (RO)
H = 200, 214i, 220D (CO)
J = 200 (S2)
K = Streetwise (R1)
L = MG (M2)
M = 200, 214Si, 216Si, 220SD, 220SKi, 200 (C1)
N = 200 (TL 3.1)
P = Streetwise (R2)
W = 200Vi, 200 (S1)
X = MG (MO)
Y = 200, 216SLi, 216Si (LHD), 220SDi (LHD), 200 (Y2)
Z = 200 (C3)
But my 6th letter is obviously an "S"
without any hesitation!
How on earth can I know which type of vehicle it goes from?
Even more puzzling, the "A
" letter indicates that the car had a restricted throttle body (LP = low power), but I was told that:
- no MG ZR had ever had a restricted TB
- that all 04 & 05 Rover 25 were unrestricted
Yet the car was built in 2005
Any clue to help me solve that mystery?
