Hi execve,

How many days after the booking did you get confirmation on VIN? Was the color of your choice available with dealer or ordered from VW.

Regards.

Booking date was the 23rd of Aug -- they didnt have the colour of my choice; I got the VIN on the 3rd of Sep and am told the car is still in transit! Wonder how many days it takes for it to reach Bangalore.

Hi,

You will find last two digits in the engine compartment. Please request your dealer to share complete VIN.

VIN in Maruti should be like this

Name:  MarutiVIN.JPG
Views: 817
Size:  12.5 KB

You can easily decode month/year of manufacture using information in the same thread
