No VIN, no matter how high had the RDM pinion reworks done from production. While a VIN in 2300s likely has hard splined motors and bosal exhaust, it did not get the pinion reworks and is still subject to rdm failure. The software shouldn't prevent you from buying, thats a silly myth. Software updates are the easiest and cheapest thing to do.
