If not please let me know so that I can rework and come back to you.

Hi. Thanks for your reply.

You are correct in assuming that it is an Audi; in fact a Q3. I was also working on it side by side and found that in 2010, the cycle again started with A as the year letter. Mine is supposed to be 2015 model and the 10th digit is F. So, I am assuming it says that mfg year is 2015. But, shouldn't it be the current year 2014 as the actual manufacturing is 2014? I also couldn't figure out the month, but was told that by audi that my car is supposed to be September manufacture. So, just wanted to confirm on that.

Dear AZ ,

Year 2014
Month : August
Production number : 000634
Production plant : Aurangabad

I know that the dealer assured you that the car is Sep manufactured however I still think its Aug , the only way we can clear this is by taking a look at Form 22 certificate (look for road worthiness section in specific to check the Yr / Month of manufacture). This is issued by the manufacturer and this definitely should be available with the dealer.

I would request you to kindly check with the dealer and let us know.

Cheers,
pdma.

Hello Neo,

The number is incomplete as ideally the fiat VIN should have 20 characters and the one posted here only has 17. I would request you to recheck with the dealer and update us with the correct number.

From the partial number we know that this is a Punto , for Month & year we need the other missing characters.

As an example you can also refer to the VIN posted by paharino1 on the previous page.

Looking forward for the complete VIN to help you further.

Cheers,
pdma.

Thanks mate. I purchased the car. Odometer showed 38 kilometres. And July 2014 was the shipping date. Looks fine to me. I hope I made the right decision.
