I am about to buy a 2002 VW GTI from a dealer a long way away. I got a VIN number by phone and it doesn't quite check out. The car is definitely an automatic trans. but the VIN comes up as a GTI 337 which I thought was a manual 6 speed.

Re: Possible GTi 337 VIN switch (b.schulz)

VIN # 9BWDE61J324030365
I ran a VIN decoder and it appears that the 1J in the sequence means Golf Mk 4, the "3" in the sequence is not specified and the rest is about the year, plant, and serial #. Does the "3" definitely mean 337 trim?

Its kind of funny, alot of 2002 gti's come up on vin searches and insurance policies as golf/gti 337. I have seen it many times before

me too, its not uncommon

I think the dealer is mis-informed. that vin comes up as a indigo blue gti. with a nameplate set" GTI
1.8t" no special badges.

is this car even silver?
