I recently acquired a fairly new looking A-4 and would like to know just how old it is. I have the dealer's address and tele #. I assume they can tell me when they sold it if I can provide a serial number. How do I find that number??
Many thanks,

Get bright flashlight, stick head into engine compartment, open eyes, look for #'s on motor front, top, sides. Write them down. use a rag to wipe everywhere you look. If still unable to find #'s look for hidden dirt.

From Don Moyer's lips to your ears -- er, eyes:

"The serial number on late model engines is stamped on a flat surface on the front of the block just below the base of the oil fill tube over the flywheel housing. On early model engines, the serial number is stamped on the top corner of the block above the starter location."

Good luck!
