Congrats! It's June 2015 model. The fourth character 'F' represents the June month. The fifth and sixth character represents the production year and in your case, it's 15 which stands for 2015. The tenth character 'F' represents that it's a 2015 model.

Thanks for all the Gurus for providing the step by step guide to decode Vin , Got the VIN no for my Red Polo GT TSI - MEXL15600GT052162, I could decode it to Dec 2015 and Model year 2016. is there any more info i can get out by visiting any site . The site http://igorweb.org/vindec/default.aspx provided on the first page throws of error for finding VIN by stating "Unfortunately, the entered VIN cannot be decoded."

Congrats! It's November month model. The fourth character 'L' represents the November month. The fifth and sixth character represents the production year and in your case, it's 15 which stands for 2015. The tenth character 'G' represents that it's a 2016 model.

As per the decoding chart on page 1 , the fourth character 'M' represents the December month. The fifth and sixth character - 15 represents the production year . The tenth character 'G' represents the model.
Your VIN number states that it is a December month of year 2015 and G represents it is 2016 Model
