Just got a turbo x last weekend and thought it’ll be nice to know what build number it is....
Some1 pointed me in the right direction, esaabparts. Popped my vin number in and got this...
Global- 2199 corrected 2081 (118 pre launch pilot vehicle) this vin-1945
Region Great Britain; this vin-205 of 247
Market United Kingdom; this vin-181 of 223

Which one do I go by???

Looks wrong. UK numbers should be bigger than GB.

Unless GB include dependencies like the Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Bermuda, Gibraltar, etc

GB market may include ROI as its also RHD, but has otherwise the same requirements as EU, same as UK.

Agreed, looks odd. The UK is, in full, The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Therefore, GB is smaller.
