From the first page, i could figure out that it is Sep' 2014 make. Is it fine to take a Sep manufactured car in November?

Can someone help me with any other details from the VIN? Maybe to confirm EX and body color?
I bought a Feb 2014 make during May 2014 - Storme VX Pearl white. I dont think it should matter. During predelivery inspection i checked the ODO and it had clocked only 83 kms. and i felt it was fine. Just make sure that you perform thorough Pre-delivery inspection before confirming the delivery to the dealer.

Hello VTEC,

From this VIN I was not able to determine body colour , however this is EX for sure.
Also its absolutely fine to buy a Sep manufactured car in Nov , don't worry have a proper PDI done and we should be good.

According to the VIN number my polo was september manufactured vehicle. But when i recieved my RC book, it is shown as june as the manufacturing month. What should i do now? I didnt verify form 22 during registration as i was already confirmed with the VIN from this thread.

Hello soumobakshi ,

MEEHSRA36E9038776

Renault Duster

Month Of Manufacture : There is a small ambiguity here I think it is June , however when I refer to the examples decoded by the master "Wildon" it points as September.

Year : 2014

Kindly check the Form 22 certificate issued by the manufacturer before confirmation

Hello Nidhin,

As per the VIN posted earlier - WVW J 14601FT029191 I notice that the 4th character (which determines the month) is J so Ideally the manufacturing month should be September as per the guide provided on the thread.

Kindly let me know if there was any change in the VIN number ( which seems to be unlikely).

Cheers,
pdma.

Sorry for the consecutive posts as the time to edit lapped before I wanted to add this information

Dear Nidhin,

After checking your post I started searching again based on the 7th Char in the VIN you provided (6) and looks like the 7th char in the VIN for VW now represents the month and not the 4th.

Honestly Iam personally feeling very bad and guilty for misguiding you and to avoid the same by anyone else in the future , I have requested the MOD's to validate the same and update the thread & the article related.

I know its late however I would request you to accept by heart felt apologizes.

Thank You.
pdma.

Hello BHPians my first post on team-bhp. Though I have been actively following the website for about a decade, I only recently got around completing the on-boarding formalities!

So here I am asking for some help to decode the VIN of my Ertiga ZXi which is going to be delivered later this week. Promise to share pics and details in the relevant forums.

The VIN is MA3ELMG1S00285394LE. Be great to get all the possible details so I can make sure that Sai Service Andheri is giving me a new set of wheels, and not something that has been baking in the sun or bathing in the rains!

Be great to get some suggestions on tyre upgrades, as I know these will come with ZVTVs :(.

Thanks in advance.

Dear Wildon / PDMA,

Can you please decode duster VIN MEEHSRA36E7037018 for me?
Based on the logic provided and google search, I think it is Jul-2014 110 PS model.
The SA told me it is a SEP-2014 model.
