Sigh ... the uniformed ... whatever ...



I'm looking on ads from UK dealers but can't find anything. If someone can point me in the direction of a place that shows the VIN. I usually go to Ebay, Autotrader or dealer websites to get a VIN when I was doing mods to my Mustang and needed a VIN to do programming, but the European sites I'm looking at don't give VINs like they do here.

Looking to get part numbers for power folding mirrors, ACC module and a couple other items not available in North America.

How can someone scam the ownership with VIN? You can open autonation or any other car dealer and get the VIN information of all the cars they sell. You can also read the VIN of any car just by checking the code under the windshield. It is not exactly something someone can use for scamming. I mean what will they do, check if your car has a recall?

A VIN can get you the ownership of the vehicle. At least it can here. Thats all you need

Just Google VIN scams............there are dozens

I'm just sayin', because apparently, I'm "uninformed"

Yes, you are indeed uniformed ... nothing in that article shows how I am going to steal ownership of your car. And you are distracting from what I need. Move along please.


Anyway ...
If there are European websites anyone has come across that gives VINS, like they do here in Canada at dealer websites, Ebay or Autotrader? Again, I need a fully loaded European spec Compass so I can identify the part numbers for the power folding mirrors, ACC, LED head and tail lights, and the switches on the center console.

I got what I need from Jeep Australia.

Found a Jeep there with the LED head and tail lights, as well as ACC and Self Parking and power folding mirrors. Now I can use that VIN to search for parts that are specific to that car. Now I can get the part numbers I need.

PS, feel free to report me to the Australian authorities to warn them I am gong to steal a Jeep...

Can you please share the part numbers once you have time? I am interested in part numbers for the ACC steering wheel switches.
