    Thank Ichiban! Very helpful.
    For the 2009 diesels, there appears to be 2 pictures of the Saloon VIN breakdown - looking at the other years - is the 2009 Tourer also chassis code "CW3"?
    Regards, Mark.

    8th Generation diesel tourers are CW3
    1=petrol 2.0 (R20A3)
    2=petrol 2.4 (K24Z3)
    3=diesel 2.2 (N22B1/2)

    Hence, a 2009 diesel tourer is CW3. (You've got your engine as a N22A2. Is that right? The N22A is the I-CTDI. The I-DTEC is N22B.)

    Thanks Nels,
    I don't even remember putting any of that info into the garage and didn't notice that it also appears in my sig. I've already got "CW3" in there, so I must have looked it up previously at some point lol.
    Must be getting old ;-)
    I've updated the incorrect engine code.
    Cheers, Mark.

    My pleasure Mark. No need to apologise.
    I've been trying to get my head around all these chassis codes and engine types for ages. The trouble I've got is that it all makes sense when I read up on them but I only remember some of it. :dunce:
