Is it possible to have the same last 4 digits serial number but in different years.
This would mean that the VIN would be the same apart from the year number.

I believe so (that they start numbering from 1 each year), but there would be two digits of the VIN that would be different - the digit that represents the year, and the check digit (that is calculated as a function of all the other digits).

Thanks Tim, it's just that I saw a 2006 with a lower serial number than my 2005.
