    VIN plate under the bonnet?

    I took my car to the local motor factor today, so I can get the paintcode matched for some spray paint (more mods coming )

    We had a look under the bonnet for a VIN, but it has two holes, where a VIN plate could go and NO VIN plate (the holes are clean, nothings ever been fitted there)?

    The chassis number etc are in the drivers' side door reveal. Is this the same on all Astra G's? I know mine's not been reshelled or anything, it was HPI clear and I got it from a Vauxhall main dealer when it was 6 months old :shock:

    Car manufacturers don't bother with VIN plates anymore as they realised they where a waste of time. Instead they have a plaque on the dashboard and stickers everywhere with the VIN number on them

    Yeah they stoped puting vin plates under the hood just got the sticker on the drivers side door and dash.
    Made a fool of myself, having a benny in a dealership asking why my cars got no identity.
    Thank you Mr PaulSri for pointing out to me I had no vin plate.
