    The sure if you've solved the VIN number mystery, I read you talking about it when I first became a member of the forum, but can't remember if you solved it... Anyway, I found this on www.306gti6.com

    Interesting, I've never actually read this thread till tonight.

    I have one more oddity to add (though only anecdotal). When I was shopping around for a new car, I looked at a (new) 96 S16 at British & Continental in Five Dock. It was beyond my budget (which was 30K). It had leather upholstery with suede inserts. But the thing that I've not seen mentioned anywhere in this thread was the fact that it had a digital odometer. I've always thought that the 96 S16's had the digital odometer but I didn't see it mentioned anywhere.

    I also thought that the GTi6 was not released in Australia until 1998. I remember being very disappointed when they announced the discontinuance of the S16 and at the time they said there would not be a replacement model. From memory the Gti6 didn't appear until 98 but I could be completely wrong.

    On the VIN numbers mine starts VF37CRFT23 It's a Jan 95 compliance Oct 94 build date S16.

    Tony.

    July 1997, according to Red Book.

    When I bought my XT in 1995, I dearly wanted an S16, but it was another 10K, at $39,000. Ah well.

    Just a quick reference post to counter the "rarity" of the S16 model sold in Australia.

    I have sales records that show that in Australia they sold a total of 319 S16s:

    1994: 88
    1995: 207
    1996: 24
    total: 319

    As opposed to the GTi6/GTi:

    1997: 43
    1998: 143
    1999: 66 (+9 GTi)
    2000: 5 (+24 GTi)
    total: 290

    It's from a VFacts printout that someone gave me a few years ago and for the years 1991-2006.

    I've noticed some earlier 306s have a tag in the engine bay, "Inchcape Motors". I saw it on some at Dapto Pick-A-Part the other day (94s and thereabouts) and the 97 5dr XT hatch I'm just about to buy, but not at all in the engine bay of my 2000 XT.

    So whom was Inchcape Motors?

    Hi Splintex,

    Inchcape was the previous importer, before the current importer (Sime Darby) took over in October 2001.

    Thanks for that SLC206. I find that on closer observation, my 2000 XT sedan does have this tag under the bonnet, but no mention of Inchcape Motors. Apart from that omission, the tag is otherwise identical to the "Inchcape" tag under the bonnet of my 1997 XT 5dr hatch.
