    Hi to all of you.

    I am aware that I am a pain, but I have just started to try and sort out Sportster production

    I know of T6 101 as the first, and T6 320 supposedly the last, but Terry Matthews says that total Sportster
    production (kits and completed cars) is 144...so there must be gaps in the T6 sequence

    In order to help me try to make sense of this, could you please let me know the full T6 etc numbers - the
    full letters etc are useful as they usually include a date reference - and the registration number of your car

    This information is for the archive database only, I have many car reg. numbers which I need to tie in

    Thanks in anticipation

    Dave Cunnington

    PS I'm also putting a request in the Cabrio section, as there are also large gaps and it requires the same help !

    Hello Dave
    Not sure if you are still looking for Sportster info. You may well have mine it was originally P721 EOD now PIW 747
    it was originally a factory demonstrator as featured in the Men & Motors video (still online) and numerous magazines.
    VIN Plate shows T6117JGKR. 9702JWME
    There is also an engraved plague on the dash which reads
    Specially Commissioned by Marlin Sportscars Ltd
    First Registered 1st May 1997
    TOi T6 117/6 BMW 2700
    Currently road registered and road legal but like the rest of of us tucked up and going nowhere for a while.
    Though it has been out this winter including attending a very cold New Years Day beach swim.
    All the best
    Pip Watts

    Many thanks Pip, appreciate your help. That's one more I needed to confirm - we'll get them all eventually !

    Dare I ask that when you next get the car out you could take me some pics of the car with it's new reg number
    and of the plaque and send to my email as in Pitstop

    Many thanks, stay well

    Rgds DC

    Dave how many positions were the VIN plates on Sportsters fitted? I have a contact on the enthusiasts facebook page living in Rejacivick? who cannot find the VIN on his car. I said I would ask how many other positions they were fitted to cars.

    Hi Steve, that's a new one on me - a Sportster in Reykavik Iceland

    If he has any factory paperwork it may well quote the T6 number and date

    I am not too familiar with the Sportster model, but here is a pic of one plate, (you
    might recognise it !) it's in roughly the same place as on the Cabrio/Hunter, ie the
    passenger side of the scuttle on a RHD car

    The Berli is also normally on this side, however I have heard of Berlis and Cabrios
    with the plate in a similar location but on the other side !

    As usual, pictures to confirm any of these variations would be good - and any info
    you have especially pics of the Icelandic car

    Stay safe everyone Rgds DC

    EDIT : Here's a pic of a 2008 Sportster plate, same as those seen on a 5exi, so like
    everything Marlin, evolved with time, and I have no idea where to find it on the car !
