    I am looking to get a few parts
    Only thing confusing me a little is the Vin number reference
    It says 8E-2-297 100 or 8E-2-297 101
    Im guessing anything up to and including the complete sequence of numbers is one option and anything above the full sequence is the other option
    I was assuming that the Vin would end either 100 or 101 (as daft as it sounds i thought this might be the case)
    The only part of my Vin that matches is the 8E

    In the part numbers sticky is a link which explains part numbers and how they're made up, that might help.

    Mine is an 04 plate, so its the one ending 101

    1.9 TDi >02 >8E2297100 038 198 119
    1.9 TDi 02> 8E2297101> 038 198 119A

    Its a cambelt kit im looking at
    The 100 kit has an option of a damper or not
    101 kit does not show this option, im guessing the later models dont have/need the damper
