Thank you @wildon for the comprehensive details. You really rock
The vagauto.com seems to have vanished - any idea what happened to them?

Cheers!

Can you check for me? I've bought a BMW 3 series.

This is the VIN no given to me by the dealer

Now my dealer assures me its a November manufacture. While buying I had put a condition that I don't want a previously manufactured car.

Is this way of confirming 100% correct? Also, can there be logistical differences in the dates? I mean the dealer has sent me a Production Confirmation email that says its 'Production Date' as 28th November, 2013.

Thanks.

Also, please let me know if there is any way of physically confirming this with the dealer. My dealer says its a 28th November 'Production Date' and has sent me a confirmation email.
Problem is, my vehicle is arriving today (Friday) and is scheduled to go to RTO on Saturday morning. I want to clear this issue before it gets registered in my name.

I'm not sure if this is the correct thread to post but have a small query.
I was offered a good deal on Jan 2013 manufactured new Fiesta. Do you guys think it is a good choice to pickup a vehicle that old? Please advise!

Nothing wrong at all.
You can use this to negotiate very hard with the dealer and get yourself a really sweet deal!
