Complete hypothetical here: let's says you have a 1990 model 110 per your registration i.e first registered xx 1990. However the VIN decodes as a 1989. The truck has a Defender 200 TDI in it but the VIN decodes to a 19J. Is it a: legal to import since some 1990 models had 200 TDis, or b: illegal since it originally had a 19J? Discuss...

they must be decoding VINs now so I wouldn't press my luck. I doubt they are going from model year ect.

Andy:
Vehicles are evaluated on the port by year of manufacture, NOT year of registration.
If the physical vehicle does not match the vin decode, it is NOT allowed in... end of discussion as far as CBT is concerned.
