    Default Where was it built?

    Is there a code in the VIN that indicates what plant a particular veccy was built in? (Or are all UK vectras built in Scouseland?) If so does anyone have that info please.

    I think yours will be Russelsheim.
    Anyway it is position 11: 1 stand for Russelsheim, 8: Ellesmere Port (up to 2004), P: Warschau, Z: Ismir
    Your VIN probably looks like this: WOL0ZCx68 6 1 xxxxxx

    Thanks for that, it is Russelheim (which makes it more German than the VW Golf I had which was made in Bratislava).

    Excellent info that, and confirms yet again I have another Vectra from Russelsheim
    I'll need to get back to the dealer and ask for a replacement EU Conformity Certificate!

    Vectras have not been built in Ellesmere Port since the new Astra was launched.
