Audi in VIN spin

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

While in­ves­ti­gat­ing diesel­gate is­sues, the state prose­cu­tor’s office in Mu­nich has dis­cov­ered that thou­sands of Audis ex­ported to China, Korea or Ja­pan may have the same 17-digit ve­hi­cle iden­ti­fi­ca­tion num­ber (VIN). It’s not clear how or why this may have oc­curred, but both Ger­man and EU laws stip­u­late that each ve­hi­cle needs to be clearly iden­ti­fi­able by a unique VIN which will re­main un­copied for at least 30 years. “We are not aware of the fact the VIN num­bers have been is­sued more than once,” said Audi.
