So I purchase a 03 rsx type s without looking at the dashboard and notice the vin plate was missing BUT the whole reason the vin is missing was due to swapping out the ugly tan interior to black interior. Everything else in the car matches my title. What should I do? Yes I do know messing with any vin number is illegal but that's how the car was bought. Any advice would be grateful thanks.

Maybe talk to a dealership and see if they can get you a replacement? I could see that turning into a huge ordeal for you if you get pulled over and the cop goes to match your VIN.

Yea but here in Texas dealerships can't make vin plates. I was told to go thru a vin inspection with my local law enforcement.

bumping a thread 3 years old... smh. plus the VIN should be engraved in the engine bay, or the driver side door jam, and newer RSX's have vin matched body panels. Such a fenders, hood, hatch, ect.
