Don't let them feed you that old line, the VIN tells them all of that stuff, if they take the time to look.

i am bringing a irish reg car into ni so to get it changed a need to insure it and they says they will insure it threw its VIN number but they need to know what model it is { GTI,TDI,S,etc} but on the log book it says just a standard 1.4 golf but they say it wont come up a plan one only different models but a have contacted not one but three VW main dealers two in NI and one in the free state and they looked up the car and said the same thing that its a plain golf with no model but that inst good enuf for the insurance company ???????

Have your insurance company look at what Golf were sold in Ireland and they will probably find that the only golf sold there was a standard. So I believe that you would have an S Golf, S for standard.

but it doesn't say on the logbook that its and S ? am fed up at this stage because the insurance company are willing to insure me by my VIN but they are taking the piss about a model

Have you considered trying ANOTHER insurance company? Maybe a 2nd insurance company won't be a pain in the ass, like this one is...

well if a change i will lose my year ncb but managed to get it sorted they foned vw and vw told them what a told them and there happy enough to change it
