Locating the VIL sticker

The VIL sticker (below)  is usually (but not always) found in the car’s service book and (until about 2004) under the bonnet, so that’s where you have to look for the Porsche country code. The sticker below has the Porsche country code C16 which means it is a UK car.

The VIL sticker shows the country code – in this case C16 for the UK.
