The VIN issue is not a quirk..or some unkown area...it's simply this:
Euro cars use the ZZZ in the middle of their designation...and that will happen to match the "official" VIN.
For USA..the door jamb numbers count, and the ZZZ is not used in this "official" position. The bodies all come off one asembly line...and the bodies don't know if they'll end up in USA, Japan, or Europe....so the ZZZ is common to all the bodies....

But you're right...causes many to skip a heart beat or two ....
