Have any of you had to replace the manufacturer VIN sticker that is on the door jam after body work has been done?
I recently found out the VIN sticker on my M2 is missing. I reached out to the previous driver, he claims the car was parked on the street when a lady backed up into the driver rear quarter panel. Said it was minor and gave me info of the shop that did the work. I reached out to the shop and they wouldn't give me any information. They said I would have to go to the DMV about retrieving another sticker. I asked "I need to ask the DMV for a sticker that comes from the manufacturer?" They weren't much help obviously.
Shouldn't the shop still have the sticker or be able to replace it? Has anyone been in a similar situation? Is this situation bigger than what I believe?
Carfax report showed the car is clean, although I did notice a vague "service report" done by a "service facility". I either missed it or didn't think much about it. The car was straight and paint job was done really well. Although I did notice a very minor crease across the rear pillar
Is this something that could be replaced at all?
