De-Code Your Optional Extras!

Recommended Posts

Dunno if this has been posted before, but just come across this website and thought that I would share it:

http://igorweb.org/equidec/Default.aspx

Basically, type in the optional extra codes into the input box on that website and then click "Decode!"

This tells you exactly what the codes mean!

For example, found out that my new polo has ABS from the code "1AC" on the sticker.

This is the same sticker that has your paint code and engine number etc on!

Thought it would be pretty useful for anyone looking to find out what optional extras their polo's came with :)

They're just simple PR numbers!

Not really optional extras, just how VW specify what the car has fitted from factory in code form instead of writing out a huge list.

If you ring up a VW Parts Dept. they can tell you every single thing about the car without even having seen it. :)

My 1.0 6n2 had 17" alloy wheels listed as standard which VW never did that size for the car! :lol:

Hmm, my (6n) has an uprated boot lid (it's got a slight 'flick' on the top of it)... I wonder if that is what they class as the spoiler?!

Also, does anybody know what 7L0, 4KC & 4GF actually mean?? are these things not standard or something?

4KC & 4GF just means tinted glass

7L0 on later Vw's the fuel pump relay will cut out in the event of a crash (controlled by the airbag control unit) to reduce the fire risk if a fuel pipe etc is damaged in an accident. It could be this it refers to??

I must say this one did smell nice... smelt of really old granny you'd imagine to live in a manor or a ikle cottage somwehere lol.

EDIT: well when i say smelt nice, i mean for a old dear... you know what i mean lol

Haha ;)

And some of them are the standard things that the car comes with, however some are optional extra's etc - good if you're interested in finding the codes out - some of the descriptions are a bit off like "lights for driving on the left" - but you get the gist of what it means lol

Nothing exiting by the looks of it.

X2B = National sales program Great Britain
1AB = Power brake

C0A = Alloy wheels 8.5J x 17
H0C = Tires 205/60 R16 92V optimized rolling resistance

3D1 = Center console
8TD = Rear fog light for driving on the left
8F2 = Side turn signal lights
1TB = Fuel tank vent line with gravity valve and PVC breather hose

1AB = Power brake - Standard?

3FB = Spoiler roof

5J1 = Rear spoiler - Pretty sure these are the same thing and were standard on coupes.

C0A = Alloy wheels - Nope

4KC = Side and rear windows in heat-insulatingglass

4GF = Windshield in heat-insulating glass - Pimpin 8-) (Standard on Genesis I'm sure)

8K2 = Separate daytime running lights --NAR-- - Eh?

So a very much standard MK3, no mention of the steel sliding sunroof... Also my sticker states that my car is a Polo Coupe Fox. I'm guessing the Genesis is partially built up as a Fox then given Genesis extras? Weird trim level this Genesis.
