    On AOC we like to refer our cars by a chassis codes, so if you find someone saying CM1 or CM2 this thread should be helpful.

    For all 7th Generation tourer owners your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number ) is made up of 17 characters.Please note this example of of a facelift 7th Generation Accord, prefacelift models do have some minor changes in engine as well as gearbox codes.
