- The M-codes tell you which extra optional extra’s were added to the vehicle in the factory. Perhaps it is better to say that the M-codes display in what way the vehicle is different than the standard type 2. For example M-code 252 can hardly be called an ‘optional extra’, it stands for ‘1300cc engine instead of 1600cc’.The ‘M’ in ‘M-code’ comes from the German word ‘Mehrausstattung’. In VW litterature M-codes are often mentioned like ‘M500’, meaning ‘M-code 500’.
- For each code I have noted the source by a letter. This is to keep track of where the information came from:B = Brochures (Volkswagen, Westfalia…)
D = Info from various documents issued by VW. Sich as pricelists and salesconditions.
E = Erik Meltzers list from the T2ig
P = Found on production plates of several type 2’s
R = Ron van Ness’s Micro Fiche
V = VW Museum
S = Other source
Some used terms in this list:
- LHD = Left hand drive
RHD = Right hand drive
