Not a GTS, it's the 2057th 1990 Euro S4 Automatic. Did it get a GTS fender flare transplant at some point?

Got a pic of the option sticker from the rear deck, over the gas tank?

Most excellent Rob ... I must change my lists to reflect the correct description. 'Type designation on rear end' was way too mundane.

Nope, that's only 15 numbers, and no letters. Sometimes one can narrow down an incorrect/incomplete VIN using the last 5 and the YOM letter, but not in this case.

Shoot a picture of your A-pillar VIN tag and post it. Or e-mail to [email protected] if you can't post here.

Here are the 85-95 VIN digit decoders. Note that VINs contain no letter O's, only number zeroes. Of course that didn't stop the guy who typeset the '85-89 Tech specs book from getting that wrong, but they fixed it in '90:

Could this be Greg Nettles' car? Is this car a 5 speed?

Dan, was wondering the same thing myself, but wasn't Greg's car an '87? Or was "Blown 87" a C4 Corvette? Can't remember now.

Interesting that for 85-89, Japanese cars had their own serial numbers, but not in '90.

I have a '90 from Japan: WP0ZZZ92ZLS840164 - so #164 in the ROW series. It does have the option code C08 for Japan. In comparing it to earlier Japanese cars it does not have the fender add-ons, steering wheel horn-sticker, etc. so it looks like there were fewer differences required.

The wikipedia page on VIN tech is quite the history lesson, lots of different standards over time and place.

Rob, about my GTS, i will get back with you ones i am back in germany. I only have a picture right now of the sticker in the trunk but it is really hard to read! I would be happy to post it here but don't know how ;(
I could send it via email.

Thank you again,
Rich

No problem, shoot me an e-mail at the gmail address a couple of posts above with any pics you may have, I'll try to decipher and post. Now that I know it's a '92 Euro GTS, there's only so many VINs it could be.

I have no options?
do I have a "off the shelf" model?
I know I have LSD, so was LSD standard for a A/T?
