I think you are buying parts from the wrong place if they can't help you out without a VIN.
What parts do you actually need anyway?
I need some parts for my engine and the VIN number that came on the shell specifies that I have a 2 door 1.8L. Could anyone with VR6 VIN please chuck it up here or contact me with it so I can get these parts I so desperately need (damn VW's).
My mate is just getting them through Bill Buckle, he works there. Serpentine belt and a few gaskets...
It actually is very hard for vw to find parts without a vin, as there software comes with all the models europe also got, and so there are a few different variations of even the vr6 engine. For things like that I'd supply a vin to help a bit. If you still need one I can go and get it off the vr6 if you like
Current: '86 Black BMW E30 325i Coupe (click for thread)
Past: '94 Windsor blue VR6, '95 White Bagged 3 door mk3
Mate, I am a friend of martys and live locally. Just PM me your mobile number and ill SMS you my VIN.
I'm not sure how much difference there is, but I do know the oil filters are different on pre and post mid '96 engines :S
I'm out at the moment so don't have the break number, but there is a listing somewhere of what engine number the change happens at...
just use the vicroads status check
VicRoads: Vehicle Status Checks
go on carsales and find a vr6 for sale type in its rego and bingo u have the #VIN
