    1 Digit/number missing Mark.
    Always 17 in total.

    When you have the correct Vin#, put it into this website and you'll have the info you need. Can also be saved on your PC as a PCD.

    Hi guys,

    I purchased a Mercedes A45 around 10 days ago from copart uk. I have done the HPI check and it states that it's imported. Can you please help me identify the car with VIN DVLASWA3971726308. I can't find anything about this.

    Thank you in advance

    As above, needs a the full 17 digit Vin# to decode.
    It will be in the lower passenger side windscreen and probably begin WDD or WDC and 14 further numbers and letters.
    When you have this, put the Vin# into this site for the datacard.

    Thank you for your replies guys. I thought this was the VIN as this is the one on door panel. Please see attached. 3a11aa56-de83-45fe-9d42-bb2831c8f9ed.jpeg

    There is an error message when putting in that Vin#

    Is the same number shown in the windscreen and the V5?
    I've never seen a Mercedes that started with anything other than a W?

    That's so weired. I have made some research and I couldn't find anything on VIN starting like this either. I don't have the car as this as this will be shipped to Cyprus for registration therefore I can't checked the windscreen VIN.
    The picture that I have attached on the previous post is the one that was listed on copart website. Also they had as VIN number the DVLASWA3971726308 in their website for the car.

    I am so confused.

    It is strange the Vin starts with the letters for the Driving and Vehicle Licencing Agency (DVLA)
    If Copart can't assist anymore, give the DVLA a call with the Vin# you have and the registration and explain the situation.
    They should be able to help you.

    I'd be intersted to see what number is in the windscreen.

    Very strange, this surely means it came into the country without a VIN number which is very suspect. Almost sounds like it is a vehicle stolen abroad. Clearly the VIN number is a special issue from DVLA Swansea who certainly wouldn't issue a VIN number to a stolen vehicle. Weird to say the least :confused::confused:. Maybe Copart Ltd can spread some more light on it. I don't think I would have put my money into that without knowing the full story and have documented proof. :eek:

    Thank you all for your replies.

    Now my confusion is turning to fear.

    Just to add some more confusion to the whole situation check the additional information stated in copart.
