Default Replacement VIN stickers

The VIN sticker in my door is FUBAR. It's old, faded, weathered beyond some recognition. Has anyone successfully ordered new VIN labels from places like:

Replacement VIN Sticker, VIN Labels, Tire Pressure Label | Auto Data

ECS Automotive Concepts - Late Model Replacement VIN Door Decals

Sadly, I don't own a shop so I'm uncertain if I'm eligible to order but I'd love to replace mine.

I may be able to order you some through my friends shop. I had to replace my drivers door, so I have an incorrect door VIN. PM me.

Did you try Mazdaspeed or your local Mazda dealer (if you are not a Mazdaspeed member)?
I've seen them on the MazdaSpeed site, stock parts.

(Note - Got e-mail from Mazda today, Steve at MazdaSpeed is retiring. Great guy!!!)

Yes.


I want to make it as easy as possible to sell, if in case that happens. Nothing looks more sketchy than a half dilapidated, weathered, half legible label. That and I look at it every time I get into my car. It makes me so very sad. So sad.

You have paint missing, lots of dings, and you're worried about a sticker?

A sticker is actually more important that you think... In my case, my VIN got damaged during a transfer to a new dash (creases) so if a cop decides he wants to see my VIN on my drivers door, he will see a non matching VIN, because I replaced mine with a mint OEM brilliant black door after mine was damaged. It's not fun to explain to a dick cop what's going on with your now potentially stolen car, after he just got you driving way too fast.

Not sure how it goes in the U.S. but I was able to order one through my local dealer after I had new quarter panels welded in. They did know me and my car ,but they also checked the other body vin on the fire wall. They also knew the reason for replacement as it was one of their staff that hit my car and made the panel replacement necessary. Did get a deal on the factory quarters though ! 👍

For what it is worth, I tried going through a dealer and had a direct conversation with Mazda to try to get new door jam stickers for my Grandsons car to no avail.

It's what's on the inside that counts.
