Hello: I asked a few days ago about my engine code and car build date. Thanks to all who replied. I found that my build date is 3/7/2000 (d/m/year).

However, I'm still trying to find the assembly plant. I've run my VIN several times thru different decoders but they aren't very helpful. One decoder insists that the B5 was built in Brazil while another decoder says my Passat is a two door!

Can somebody run this VIN and tell me where it was built?

WVWBH63B61P024989

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Anchieta, Brazil

Mosel, Germany
Yep, that's my confusion. Does anyone know how to exactly determine the plant where my B5 was made? It doesn't really matter, but I like to learn as much about my car as possible. Thanks.
