I've found some info of Cooper's VIN:

1)
WMW - Europe, Germany, BMW
RC3/RE3/RA3/RB1 - Make & Model (Mini Cooper/Mini Cooper S/Mini One/Mini Cooper D)
1/2/3 - Specification (UK/Euro/US)
4 - Restraint system (Dual Airbags) (????)
(0-9 or X) - Check Digit
3 - Year (2003)
T - Plant (Oxford, GB)
C/D/other letter - (5-speed/6-speed/CVT)
12345 - Serial

2) For BMWs, some info are correct for Mini

For some reason, my 2002 MC has a "0" on the 10th digit from the left. Any of you have a 2002 MC/MCS with a "0" or other digit?

Wow, That Decoder Found Mine straight away. :) :)
Very Useful Tool For checking out any car your thinking of buying

Although it asks for the last 7 Digits of the VIN, I input my Chassis number (found at front of handbook), starting with "TC*****", and up popped the info

{It made a slight mistake saying its got a "rear axel final drive" But Who`s perfect} :D
