Hi, My car is 2001 reg Audi A4 B5 1.9TDi SE Estate Reg No:

Customer Question

My car is 2001 reg Audi A4 B5 1.9TDi SE Estate
Reg No: SV51 WHX
Chassis no: WAUZZZ8DZ1A155399

This model was subject to a facelift around 2000. We think our car is facelift version, on grounds that.:
1. The strip on the tailgate on which the lock is mounted, is flat (bulges outwards on pre-facelift model, which also has larger radius upper corners)
2. The windscreen washer jets are hidden behind/under bonnet.

Are our assumptions correct, and can this be verified by the chassis number.

on the logbook doc, there are two other numbers:
Variant: AAJMF1
Version: FM52EER92N

Hello Richard,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Hello again Richard -

Now - I just need you to double check the VIN you have listed Richard - it is not coming up / back as a valid VIN..

Its very easy to get a digit wrong - so if you can double check on that - let me know - and then we can carry on..
