4   =   Filler (Z) or check digit

Starting from MY 2002 (from roughly June 2001), Audi introduced the so-called ‘US check number’ at the 9th character. . The MY can be recognized by the number ‘2’ at the 10th character of the VIN.

The exact beginning of the check numbers on individual models:

ModelLast VIN without check number
A2WAU ZZZ 8Z Z 2N 002240
A3 WAU ZZZ 8L Z 2A 000290
A4WAU ZZZ 8E Z 2A 001304
A6 WAU ZZZ 4B Z 2N 003475
A8WAU ZZZ 4D Z 2N 000275
TTTRU ZZZ 8N Z 21 000166

The computation of the check numbers is conducted in the same way as the computation of check numbers on US vehicles and on BMWs. It is easy to do using the ‘VIN-Assist’ program of the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB). The check number can either consist of the numbers ‘0 – 9’ or the letter ‘X’.

In vehicles destined for the American and Canadian markets, the 9th character of the VIN always was a check number.

5 =   Model Year

Exception:

The VIN codes of VAG models delivered to France are pre-dated by one year.

E.g. The VIN of a car manufactured in 1990 – normally indicated by an “L” – has an “M”, which is the code for 1991.

The A3, A4 and 80 models are generally made in Ingolstadt, and the A 2, A6, A8 and 100 models in Neckarsulm. The manufacturing plant for the Audi TT is in Györ, Hungary. The Q7 is produced in Bratislava. If there are production bottlenecks or other production problems in Neckarsulm, the A6 models will also be produced in Ingolstadt. They then receive the letter A.

*Vehicles with US specifications (USA, Canada, Touristen) and for Brazil

The fillers (Z) are replaced by a vehicle code (4th to 6th characters) on the identification number plate (behind the windscreen), the certification label and on the official documentation. This (17 character) number serves as the vehicle identification number in the USA and Canada.

**These characters are used internally, e.g. in computer systems, as vehicle identification numbers. They enable a particular vehicle to be identified throughout the concern. The consecutive numbering (the 12th – 17th characters), in connection with the manufacturing plant (11th position) refers to a vehicle class.
