Are My Cars' Installed Option Codes Engraved Somewhere In/On the Car?

Hi all,

I've just spent an hour searching but couldn't find what I was looking for. I am sure I saw a thread sometime in the past few months that mentioned that all the option codes that are installed in your car were actually listed / engraved somewhere in/on your car.

Does anyone know if this is true & if so, where?...or am I just dreaming?

VERY COOL!

I have the following note at the top of my vehicle information too: "Individual data present!"

VIN Decoders are so cool(!), but how do they know what they know!?

AND, are VIN numbers are in sequential order of build date? (i.e.: one number before was produced immediately before and one number after mine was produced immediately after?)

Thanks!
