    Ok, so I've read/heard/seen how a typical 6-digit serial number would "trickle" into the "A" suffix when the number gets high enough.

    Here's my question. There are 6-digits, so has anyone ever seen a serial that's gone past 1XXXXX? In other words logic would tell me that there should be 2XXXXX, 3XXXXX and so forth.

    And if not, why would 1XXXXX be the cut off to start adding the "A" suffix due to the "running out of serial numbers"?

    Where have you read/heard/seen that?

    The trailing "A" and "B" denote later generations of the model

    Not because they rolled the odometer over, though

    I've read it posted on the forum that the suffixes denote a later generation in conjunction with the numbers spilling over. Lol

    I probably misunderstood hence my thread :)
