The number on the tire is definitely your sequence number so you have an early production model. Part way through the '02 production the sequence numbers jumped by 728 over the VIN numbers. The early VINs may be the same as the sequence numbers.bibsuit said:I've heard several different stories. Mine is 0288. Anybody know what it means?
That is your build number. If you looked through the car carefully you can find it in other places too before they fade away. When your car is preferenced it is assigned a number and the parts are ordered. The assembly plant works on a just in time parts program. The parts have the number on them so they know when they are needed on the line. On the seats the number is on the plastic wrap that covers them before they are installed. On a coupe the number can also be found under your lids covering the cargo holds in the back.bibsuit said:Now, what is a sequence number? Does it mean mine was the 288th Z06 built for the 02 model year? Does the number have any other implications?
