So what happens to my vin after I submit it? Does it get used for other purposes?:busted:
ofourse not, app is made for owners or future smart owners to get full / correct list of equipement (SA CODES) and car info - all from EPC directly (so all VIN numbers are already there)

Well the formatting of this document from smart was messed up here but I hope you get the gist of it. The bold digits down the left in a vertical arrangement are a sample US style VIN, and the descriptions to the right of each show the possible variations.

Not a lot comes out of a smart VIN other than the basic model, body type, engine type, restraint systems and model year. The rest is boilerplate.

That's probably available to the owner anyway :wink:
heh ok, but all data in my app was only available for dealers only, and i made it public for all, like engine type/serial, transmission type/serial, delivery date, and full equipement list etc, but ofcourse, if you know all - then simply dont use it ;-)
