Code in passenger door

Post by BXcitro »

Hi guys, I've been told the 4 digit code in the passenger door indicates my cars birth date, mine is 5328, can anyone tell me what it is and how you work it out?

Thanks

Maybe it would of been interesting if it was made a year before it was registered or my birth date, or a date that's means something personally to me.
