    I am EU based roadster owner, and I had to take official vehicle inspection after 4 years of use of the car. The rules may be different at each country, however I expect that in EU it may be similar.

    A mandatory condition to pass the inspection is to show the embossed VIN number, ie "hardwired" number to the chassis.

    It is hidden behind the front right wheel and visible when the wheels are turned fully right. I got this from the Tesla support, which was very helpful, but the support person had to find this info, so it was not straight forward.

    There is a VIN number visible on the left side behind the windsheeld, and one on a sticker on the side of driver's door (some vehicles may have it on a metal plate at that location), but it was not enough for the inspection.

    So if you will need the "real VIN location" on your roadster, remember it is behind the right front wheel. See the pictures.
