Just did some quick analysis... I actually put all the info here in a spreadsheet and put it in order by production number... Everything seems to line up and I was even able to put in some production months for those that were missing..

In terms of color, here's what I have so far:
LPM 17
BCM 5
WWP 8
VRM 11
BM 14
TGM 2

And it also looks like KrGsMrNKusinagi had one of the last WWP since his PN is so close to the cut off.

I think you've got something really valid here Gary. As long as some other cars don't pop up with vin numbers in between ours, this is solid. Is there a way to search by a VIN# to check if there are some in between ours that aren't MS6's?

Thats awesome.. I figured that I was close to being right with the BCM and TGM being the rarest colors..

yea my dad wanted a white one to but they didnt have anymore and the black one sold the night before.
but we also got a hell of a deal on it and red was my 3rd favorite and i actually like it better than white now.

NP Gary. I'll do it when I get home.

GL with getting something going! This is pretty awesome! I'm trying to spread the word to other MS6 owners to post their info.

If this is indeed legit, keeping some record of it would be great.We can also add purchase history and keep as much info as we know regarding the cars for future owners/reference.

Yay, i would LOVE to hear official word from Mazda about this, to know of these numbers are true production #'s.
I have a friend that works for the Dept. of Justice/Stolen Vehicles Unit and can look up any VIN and translate what every number means. The last 4 digits also contain specific manufacture information for that specific car like factory location... only 2 factories produced our cars, Hiroshima and Hofu, in Japan.

ill see if she can shed more light for us.

they are the less wanted colors :p
as if!!! low production #'s don't equate to less desired of a color.
if anything it speaks to exclusivity. (moon)

ok, so my dept of justice friend got back to me... here is my full VIN number breakdown...

digit / description / meaning
J..........................COUNTRY OF ORIGIN.......JAPAN
M1.......................MANUFACTURER..............MAZD, MAZDA
GG12L..................MODEL...........................MAZD A
..............................................................4D SD/2.3L/D&P,
..............................................................CRTN+SD
5..........................CHECK DIGIT.................CHECK DIGIT VALID
6..........................YEAR............................2006
1...........................ASSEMBLY PLANT..........HOFU, YAMAGUCHI
100508.................SEQUEN CE NUMBER.........IN RANGE

no idea what lots of this means...
D&P? CRTN+SD?
check digit valid?
sequence number? possibly the "full" production number? being the last 6 instead of 4 #s.

and Fyi there should be only ONE other # for ASsembly Plant.. like 0 or 2.
just some interesting info for yall.

Plant Number is 2 digits in our case.. so yours would be 11.. most people should have this.
