There is an interesting discussion over on the coupe forum where somebody has found a guy that can decode your VIN showing you the exact date of build and all the options fitted. Now this is not new as there have been several posts across the forums with details on how to obtain this information but what is different in this case is that this guy can give you a bit more information like what position your car is in the production run how many were made of your colour etc. so it is worth giving it a go so you can get a little bit more history about your Zed. All you need to do is click the link below and register on the site which requires only the bare minimum of info and then post a request on the page, he appears to be responding very quickly (withn 24hours) so no waiting around really. My Z3M is apparantly the 114th one to be made out of 8 on the day of 20/01/1998 and there were 56 Arctic/Imola colour combo's made in total.
