    2nd Request, for info, does anyone know what is the VIN of the last Silver CSE that rolled out of the Factory? I have a similar 98 Auto-Silver CSE with last VIN number 3235 I have not seen a higher VIN number or silver CSE like mine on the net, expect of course the LAST one built n. 503087. Mines has all commemorative package except for the wheels which are from the 98 CSE (Expose lug), Sorry to insist but I think it could be the next to last on built, if that the case, I want to store it. Can know for sure until I have the VIN n. of the last one. any help greatly appreciated.

    Hello Gonzalo
    My black 9000 2,0 CST 150 has last VIN no. 4504. It was registered first time on 30. dec. 1998 (in Denmark). I, too, would like to know the last VIN number of the last 9000. Perhaps one will have to go to Trollhättan to look it up?
    Best regards from Denmark.
