The VIN tag is located on the left front body hinge pillar below the upper door hinge. The tag is spot welded in place and is made of polished stainless steel.
On American built cars, the cowl tag is located on the top of the cowl under the hood next to the drivers side hood hinge. It is riveted in place with special rivets. The cowl tags were installed prior to the body being painted, thus they are always body color.
