Default Vin check for options

Is there a website that I can go to for finding the vehicles options from the VIN #?
VIN # 1G2HZ52K4WH217974
This is what Im looking at:
http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.js...g=&cardist=297

let me know if you can help decode this vin.
I'm really looking to see if this Bonneville has a sunroof.
I know the basics on this vehicle.
What do you think?

the best thing to do is call them.............. as far as i know you can not really distinguish options with a VIN number unless you get a buildsheet reprint from the dealer. It would involve alot more effort than a phonecall to the auto sales place

It doesn't appear to have one, nor does the seller list one.

I did call the seller and they told me that it had one, but by looking at the photos I can't see one there.

Simple. Ask for a photo showing it.

Took a lil' ride and saw the car. No visible damage, no sunroof, no outside rust, good tires, very nice interior, no CCR, no performance shift. Couldn't get a look inside except the window shopping. They were closed and i had to hop my fat *** over a 7 foot gate to look. The seller might have thought you were asking about the S1 SSEi on the lot, it has a sunroof. Anything else i'll have to go Mon. when there open.
