Dear MB Forum users,
I am Portuguese, living in Portugal and I am buying a E 200 cabrio which is located in Germany - 3.000 Km away from me.
Before I am near the car will you please help me on these 2 questions,
-Exact location of VIN number
-Exact location of engine number
Thanks very much for your help
Kind regards

The following is an excerpt from

The table below will help you locate your Mercedes's unique DNA - its unique vehicle identification number. VINs are normally located in several locations on a car, but the most common places are:

- On the door frame/door post of the front doors (usually driver's but sometimes passenger's)
- On the dash near the windshield
- On the engine itself (machined pad on front of engine)
- On the car's firewall
- In the left-hand inner wheel arch
- On the steering wheel/steering column
- On the radiator support bracket
- On your car's title, registration, guarantee/maintenance book or on the declarations page of your auto insurance policy

Also, on late model cars it should be on a sticker behind the rear license plate. Another possible location is under the carpet on the floor near the passenger seat.
