    This may sound stupid but i have bought a new Rapido 8090df and do not know if it is a x290 or x250. I never even thought about this before but have been reading on this forum and do not know. The van is a new for 2016 model. I have been motor homing for quite a few years now but for the last 8 years have had a Merc. It does not bother me either way but i have tried to find out on the internet and there is not much i can find out

    If it's definitely a new 2016 model it will be an x290, the last of the x250s were 2015 models.

    Still could be an x250, all depends when manufactured.

    If it follows suit with the 250 the first three numerals of the VIN number will be 290

    My X250 begins ZFA250.......................

    The X is used as a generalisation as the first three letters can vary

    I have been assured that I am on an X 290, yet my VIN starts 250. Fiat apparently wait until they have used the numbers set aside for them up then change to the newer numbers. Dealer Bullsh*t I dont know, but mine was biult in Oct 15. The warranty card states; Sincom-Schlussel 290 B1B4, but Vin starts ZFA250 etc. Clear as mud!!:LOL:
