I don't know if I am the only one who got bored and called for one of these....but they are actually pretty sweet. I got bored at the office and called. All you have to do is have your VIN number ready and call their 800 number. I thought it was too cute :D

Heres the link to the article where I found out about it

It is free to get the certificate. Also it doesn't matter if you were the first owner, they will still send it to you. I got Turbie used and he's a 2001. The lady I talked to at VWoA was so nice and was excited that she got to do one. If I get a chance tonight I will scan mine so you guys can see what it looks like.

Been there, done that, no can do :(

I've called VW USA, they gave me the number of VW Germany. I called them and they'd called me back with the info that that's an American thing and that in Europe they only make birthcertificates for cars older than 20 or 25 years old.

So boohoohoo for us Europeans

And what if an American called and gave the number ?

It could as well be an imported model, so could be, not?

Justin, you could try it but when I called, the lady asked for the vin and it was linked to my name and address in their database. Who knows, it might be worth a shot. Oh yeah, guess the b-day of Black makes him a 2001.5!;)
