If the Russian decoder does not work you have to email it to the classic center.

Wrong. It has worked several times for W115 and W116 models I've put in. You simply have to add WDB in front of the VIN.

Note: The VIN decoder only recognizes VINs of vehicles manufactured after 1980.
I was only repeating the information listed on the Russian VIN decoder site. That's good to know that it worked for you though.
