i love it! Happens to me all the time! just this weekend i walked into the local parts store to get a bulb for my RZR. i know they are the same as Chevy truck and about a million other car taillights and a lot cheaper than the Polaris dealer.

me - what part number are Chevy truck tail lights?

counter girl - do you have the VIN number?

me - no its not really for a chevy truck.

counter girl - well then i canít tell you the correct number.

me - ok hold on. (walk out to my Chevy truck and get my VIN)

me - xyz123vinforme

counter girl - its part number xyz321

me - thanks.
