I have an XUV500 in transit, and the dealer has shared the following serial number: G6C17895.

Can I confirm that this is 2016 (G) and March (C) manufacture.

Thanks,
Ajay

Are you sure this is the VIN? Mine starts with MA1. Plus I have a number at the 7th digit from right. As per my understanding, the eight digit from right "G" corresponds to 2016, and the sixth digit "B" corresponds to Feb.

I think that was wrong number provided by sales. I have the right number now and just verified that it is a March 2016 manufactured car.

Today when i went for final payment after Loan formalities to BIRD gurgaon as well as pre-registration PDI, my service advisor gave me a new VIN with WBA8C770X05C34724.
on decoding it shows to be manufactured in 25-01-2016. whereas he told me it was of march 2016. he also did not shows form 22, as according to him, the car has not being billed to BMW as yet. is something fishy? changing of VIN. and that it is Jan 2016. Please advise as i am not getting a good feeling

These are the first 17 characters of the VIN. There are 2 more characters at the end of the VIN which indicate the month and year of manufacture. The VIN is visible in the area under the bonnet (somewhere near the left wiper). Alternatively, ask the dealer to show you the Form-22 for the vehicle. It should have the tracing of the VIN on it.

MA3EHKD1SOOA07113LF is the VIN I received from Varun Motors , Vizag, for my dad's new Swift ZXI. They told me that its a 2015, December make. By the letter M and F I assume it is correct? Please let me know if I'm wrong. By the way they are offering a 35K discount as it is a 2015 make.

You're reading out the 17 digit VIN posted on the window sticker. The correct VIN (19 digits) is stamped below the front drivers seat. Post it here and we'll help you decode it.
