Mercedes Benz Data Card

Know what's in your Benz.


Just in case anyone wants to find out pertinent info, this site will show the complete data card, all you need is the vin. I find it very handy:

I tried that, and it came back somewhat inaccurate.

I would get the Vehicle Master Inquiry from the dealer's parts Dept. or even the factory build sheet from Stuttgart if I were you

Vin

It also doesn't work for vehicles prior to letter designations in the VIN.


VIN numbers must have 17 characters for it to work. My 1973 450SL only has 14 digits.

The colors of the car and the equipment were not correct in several cases.

The factory build sheet (in English) was on the other hand, correct, and the VMI list was accurate with the warranty claim codes, on the car, and accurately showed the equipment codes, build, shipment,port arrival date and port prep. date, mileage at the time, and time of delivery at the original dealer.

Just better and more accurate sources of information in my opinion
