All 2010ís are affected. No need to check the VIN.

Is the thread title really that hard to understand?

BLKROKT is right, all 2010s are affected... I've gotten some pretty inaccurate info about it from MB techs weirdly. Seems to be some kind of brain washing thing going on But seriously, it's definitely worth having the bolts replaced with the updated ones

As many of you know, I have been providing Datacard info to many members interested in their build sheet, or to verify engine serial number.


I received a PM from a member today who indicates he has a "late 2010 C63". The Datacard for the VIN he provided shows a delivery date of 11/24/2010. The Datacard indicates the engine number is over 4,000 engines beyond serial number 156983 60 060658 where the new head bolts were employed.


Since we've believed that all 2010 and older, and some 2011s were in the affected range, I'm confused about how this one could be outside the range. I did a search to find out which digit in the VIN corresponds to the model year, but had no luck getting a clear answer.


Anyone have any thoughts on all of this?


Thanks,


Joe

Invalid VIN. Needs to be 17 characters long.

Not affected. About 350 engines past the changeover.
