With nearly 30,000 MINIs sold annually in the U.S., up to 10% may have unresolved safety recalls. A VIN check identifies any open recalls.

Testimonials from our customers

I import JDM cars to Australia and use Bad Vin to verify chassis codes and specs. Much easier than trying to translate Japanese auction sheets. Helps a lot with making sure I am bidding on the right models.
I import cars from usa to eastern europe and use badvin to check every vehicle. The detailed equipment lists help me confirm specs for customers. very useful service
I was trying to find info on a rare old Lada but couldn't find the details anywhere. Badvin had all the data, even for this obscure model! So glad I found this service, it really helped with my project.
Overall I like the vin decoder from bad vin. gives you all the key specs & trim details. Only complaint is it didnt have info on a few older cars I looked up, like an 87 CRX. but for most vehicles its quite handy
Frequently asked questions
Yes, a VIN decoder can often determine if specific safety technologies are equipped on a MINI based on the trim and optional equipment codes within the VIN.
A VIN decoder is generally reliable for confirming the transmission type, as this information is encoded within the VIN by most manufacturers.
Most VIN decoders do not provide color information as this is not typically encoded in the VIN; color information is usually obtained from vehicle registration documents or manufacturer records.
The 'country of origin' in a VIN, indicated by the first one to three characters, tells you where the vehicle was built, which could influence parts availability and design standards.
Yes, in many cases, you can determine the type of drivetrain a MINI has from its VIN if the manufacturer encodes this information within the VIN.
A VIN decoder can confirm the safety features originally installed in a MINI, such as airbags, ABS, and stability control systems.
Yes, VIN decoding can help in legal situations by providing verified vehicle information, which can be crucial in cases of theft, accidents, or disputes over vehicle identity.
A VIN alone does not typically provide fuel economy details directly; however, it can identify the vehicle model and engine type, which you can cross-reference with fuel economy data from other sources.
To verify that a VIN has not been tampered with, check for inconsistencies in the VIN's font, alignment, and location, and compare the VIN displayed in various parts of the vehicle with that on the official documents.
The manufacturing location can be interpreted from the first character of the VIN, which indicates the country of assembly, and sometimes more specific location details are included in the first few characters.
