Got my birth certificate and it mentions 2 codes that i don't know what they mean, the VW museum can't explain either, they are M277 & M286, does anyone know what they are?

M277 - Modified Exhaust Muffler (CH) (245-256)

Seems to be common code with type3s too (and used for some German cars also as it's a minor change). Swizerland had tighter noise regulations than Germany or rest of Europe so the factory had a special muffler for CH. A practise still in use in many motorbikes.

Can't say if it makes sense in this case.

www.brickwerks.co.uk/index.php/t3-m-codes/ shows a list of know codes.

it doesn't have M286 though.

One suggestion is:
M286 = Bumper, rear with recess for license plate
up to Chassis No. 311 2500 000

This is one of the more obscure codes, there's a lot of discussion about it in Samba, see
www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?...ostorder=asc&start=0
and
www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?...ostorder=asc&start=0


The latter one has a bunch of other obscure M-numbers defined by Gizmobob (he's having an account here too, hello :) ), I'll copy them here too.
