The Jaguar VIN number is a 17-character code that provides a unique identity to every Jaguar vehicle. The VIN number consists of a combination of letters and numbers that represent various information about the vehicle, including its country of origin, manufacturer, model, engine size, and more.
jaguar Until about 30 years ago Daimler produced its own models.
Since then the Daimler label has been used for particularly luxuriously fitted limousines (such as the Jaguar XL).
These vehicles can be distinguished by the typical Daimler radiator grille, Daimler boot opening handle and the “Daimler” badge at the back.
Since the beginning of 2009 these models have no longer been on sale and will not be so until further notice.

Visible Jaguar VIN Number
In addition to the stamped Jaguar VIN Number, all newer models also have a “Visible VIN”. On the XJ, the visible VIN was introduced in model year 1990, starting with VIN …594576. Visible VINs are engraved onto an aluminium plate and can be seen beneath the windscreen on the left side. This is not a substitute for the Jaguar VIN Number on the bodywork. Exception on Model XE see below
Examples of Visible Jaguar VIN Number :
From the model XF the interior equipment-code is engraved, in addition, under the Visible VIN.
Example Jaguar XJ (X351)
After the acquisition of the manufacturer Jaguar by the Tata Group changed the company name in “JAGUAR LAND ROVER LTD” and the interior code has been repealed again
Here also model F-Type (X152), but deviations:
– company name „Jaguar Cars Ltd“
– Typography of „0“ (zero) is divergent (without a slash)
The XE is produced at the Land-Rover plant Solihull and that is the reason for using the foil with trained honeycombs-shaped break places by Land-Rover for the visible VIN.
Jaguar VIN Lettering
The Jaguar VIN Number is stamped on or is placed on by etching at newer models in a straight. The VIN on all newer models always has an asterisk at both ends (exception: the XJ 220). All characters in a VIN are the same size. The Jaguar VIN Number in the engine compartment is covered with transparent foil to protect it from corrosion.
Jaguar X-Type VIN
Jaguar XK Coupe VIN
Jaguar XK Convertible VIN
VIN Number Jaguar XF
Jaguar XJ (X351)
On vehicles until the mid of the 1980`s the VIN was smashed by hand and can hence, deliver a squalid typeface (here Jaguar XJ Double Six)
The VIN was smashed with older vehicles by hand and can hence, deliver a squalid typeface (here Jaguar stand-in XJ Double Six)
If at the works a mistake is made when applying a VIN, this is then crossed out legibly and the correct VIN is placed next to it.
Before the VIN structure was standardised in the year 2000, differences were made between European and U.S. VINs of Jaguar cars, too. Accordingly, there are different VIN parts (vehicle descriptor section) for the same car.
Jaguar had the European VIN structure also punched in Jaguar cars in the U.S. cars before standardisation; only the stickers and the visible VIN refer to the U.S.VIN.
Irrespective of the U.S. labels and the entries in the U.S. titles (car documents), however, the car has to be registered (after re-import) in Europe with the actual VIN, i. e. the punched-in VIN as stored in the Jaguar database.

Jaguar VIN Number Searches
Depending on the model and year of manufacture (the electronic data pool go back to the middle of the1990s), the Jaguar general importer and the BKA Wiesbaden are able to give an immediate response to checks made on individual VINs (the last 6 digits will do). The information can include:
Why the Jaguar VIN Number is Important
The Jaguar VIN number is important for several reasons. Firstly, it provides a unique identity to every vehicle, making it easy to track and identify in case of theft or other criminal activities. The VIN number is often used by law enforcement agencies and insurance companies to track stolen vehicles and verify the ownership of a vehicle.
Secondly, the Jaguar VIN number provides important information about the vehicle’s history, including its manufacturing date, engine size, transmission type, and more. This information can be useful for buyers who are interested in purchasing a used Jaguar vehicle, as it can help them determine the vehicle’s condition and value.
Thirdly, the Jaguar VIN number is used by Jaguar dealerships and service centers to identify the correct parts and accessories for a specific vehicle. By entering the VIN number into their system, dealerships and service centers can quickly access the vehicle’s specifications and recommend the right parts and accessories for the vehicle.
Finally, the Jaguar VIN number is also important for vehicle safety recalls. If a safety issue is discovered in a particular model or production year, Jaguar can use the VIN number to identify the affected vehicles and notify the owners to bring their vehicles in for repairs.
Jaguar Radio Number
Radio numbers cannot be used for tracing purposes.
However, a VIN enquiry to the Jaguar importer can result in the radio number of a particular vehicle being identified. Newer models have obstructed serially a multimedia device with screen.
