VIN Calculator

Ok, just was bored and was trying to work out the codes for the vin numbers...
Most of this was taken from insanesVL article (so blame him for any mistakes ).

Give it a test, it should report back most of the info about your VL
http://calaisturbo.com.au/vincodes.php

Use this plate to get the numbers from (see attached image):

Cool. Now all we need is one for the Body & Option plate on the lower left of your photo. I've got the codes if you really want to get carried away.
