    With all the upgrades and spec changes I suspect there will be a fair bit of shuffling around of VINs. Still nothing here though.

    Put it this way... you are not the poor chap who is shuffling the VINs as fast as we are changing our options.

    PS if anyone knows the email of the person doing the shuffling, please PM me as i want to arrange a meeting ;)

    I’ve just changed from LR AWD to P+, with my options on my original order the P+ was cheaper. o_O

    So average about 25% with VINs? Lower than I thought.

    Could you add the actual vins to the sheet? Maybe one under SC and another under agreement or something similar..

    5YJ3F7EB6KF4xxxxx
    Isuggest x’ing out the last 5 digits..

    That way we can see if we can figure out some more of the Tesla Model 3 VIN structure... e.g digit 5 “F” I suspect is “5 door sedan (model 3, RHD)” as “E” is the LHD

    5YJ = Tesla manufacturer
    3 = Model 3
    F = 5 door sedan (model 3, RHD)
    7 = Type 2 manual seatbelts (Front, Rear*3) with Front Airbags, Side Inflatable Restraints & Active Hood
    E = Lithium Ion Battery
    B = ??? (Motor/Drive unit)
    6 = check digit for VIN structure
    K = 2019 (year of manufacture)
    F = Fremont (manufacturing facility)

    Would be interesting to see the digits for :
    Vehicle type (digit 5) and,
    Motor/Drive unit (digit 8)
    for the different model 3’s

    Currently, I am only distinguishing between a VIN in the Source Code and an actual VIN for the purpose of establishing who is likely to get a car delivered next.

    We could include the VIN, but that would be dependent on members willing to share a large chunk of their VIN. Also, why? How will knowing the structure help? Are you thinking of being able to use the published VIN lists to figure out what spec RHD cars are on the way?

    There is nothing unique or personal about the first 11 digits

    to confirm digit 5 and to see the different digits (digit8) are for SR+, LRAWD, P-, P+

    But if there are differences in Digit 8, and we can confirm digit 5, *and* we can get the list of newly assigned VINs then one could see:
    - How many are RHD,
    - And potentially a breakdown of models

    Well I didn’t have a VIN at the start of this week but after calling to modify my order from a P- to a LR AWD to take advantage of the new pricing, it appears I now do have a VIN. This seems like progress to me! Some web research on how to decode the VIN helped me confirm that is does seem to be a genuine one:

    VIN Assigned = 5YJ3F7EB1KF42xxxx (I’ve removed the last 4 digits)
    Digits 1-3 = manufacturer = 5YJ = Tesla
    Digit 4 = model = 3 = Model 3
    Digit 5 = body type = F = RHD (no online VIN identifier decodes this but web research suggests F = RHD)
    Digit 6 = restraint system = 7 = European config (as above)
    Digit 7 = fuel type = E = Electric
    Digit 8 = motor / drive unit = B = Dual Motor Standard (apparently this applies both to LR AWD and P models which goes to prove that the P is just a software difference)
    Digit 9 = check digit assigned by manufacturer = 1 (no idea what this means, I think it’s irrelevant)
    Digit 10 = model year = K = 2019
    Digit 11 = manufacturing plant = F = Fremont, CA
    Digit 12-17: Unique serial number = 42xxxx

    Not necessarily - it depends what *exactly* they use it for - it could merely be to indicate single or dual motor.. and there may still be different dual motors...

    This is called the CheckDigit - you can think of it as a checksum - once the complete VIN is compiled all the values of each digit are used to calculate this check digit (checksum)
