X300 VIN, paint code sticker location

Postby Rok_Dr » Sun Feb 26, 2017 12:51 pm

Hi all

Where is the vin, paint and trim code sticker found on a 94 x300 Daimler?

Was looking at a local DD6 on the weekend and couldn't find it any of the usual places, eg lower b pillar and under bonnet.

Cheers

Lift the bonnet, and look by the LH side bonnet hinge, on the slam panel.
They can fade or be covered in muck sometimes. So not ideal!

Thanks Naki

I did look there, but there was only the E compliance one so I guess it may have disappeared in times past.

There's a VIN stamp in the boot I think. Near the battery somewhere? I can check exactly if you want.

I scratched the itch and was able to walk away with no second thoughts. Its a good car but Lady P is in far better nick.

Rarer than XJ81's which are like rocking horse poo ATM. The last X300 V12 I saw for sale was just after I bought Lady P. It had a great history initially bought by BHP as the CEO's Limo.
