I notice that ther vis a difference in makenumbers between US and European models.
Can anybody help me define the make-number of my car?
I have a 1997 Sharan (not imported in teh US I think)
it has a 1.9 TDI of 110 HP, equipped with a variable vane turbo.

No, was never imported to the US. The sharan is listed as having ahu, 1z (were imported to the US but were 90hp so probably not yours), afn, avg, and anu engines in 1997.

I believe the anu was 90hp so, while this is just a guess, your engine is probably afn or avg.

Thank younfor your reply. Though a bit cryptic: where do I find what afn, avg, and anu means?
google it Those are engine codes. Can we have a wikipedia smiley too? It's probably on there.
