Paul is justifiably skeptical--there are quite a few others on this forum who have ordered the fancy certificate, but I've never heard whether the missing data are included. It makes sense that the transfer to microfiche occurred early on, and then the classic centre got the idea of the certificate, but maybe I'm wrong way round.
My datenblatt has big black stripes through it, but He Who Must Be Obeyed speaks fluent German and between what's on this forum (search for "data card") and the guys at the Karlsruhe Merc dealership, he was able to fill in the missing boxes. At least they didn't cover up my colours or any really important boxes.
