Vehicle info from dealer

While I was at the dealer today getting a replacement AOS ($84) and I asked the service department to run my VIN for my options codes. I had the front hood replaced and lost the sticker. The print out I got has a bunch of info that I have a few questions on.
Invoice date 1: 1998-07-06
Invoice date 2: 1998-06-17
New vehicle warranty started on 1998-07-20
And it says that the car is model year 1998.

The VIN date code is X which I believe is 99.
RennTech's VIN decoder says it is a 1999.
The door name plate indicates a June 1998 manufacture date.
Do I have a '99?

Also, have a A209 Campaign with status 1. I assume that is a recall but can't find what it is.

Loren over renntech ran my VIN thru the Porsche database and even though my VIN says my car is a '99 the Porsche database says it is actually a '98.
A little odd to say the least.

I wonder where else the VIN is on the car to compare to the one on the dash.

There is one in the front trunk,left cover from the battery cover.
There should be a a slot with a clear plastic window (most are missing that piece over time). Look straight down it and the vin is there.
