Congrats! Yes, you are right.
Guys, I complained to Navnit Motors saying that there is lack of transparency in the system since they tried to sell me a November, 2015 manufactured car last week. I wrote official emails to the sales executive and manager Mr. Kamath at Navnit, Bangalore saying that i will not accept a 7 months old car and that I need a car that is manufactured atleast in the last 3 months. However, there is total silence from the car company and keep telling me that the issue has gone to the higher authorities. Its been a week now and there is no final conclusion/solution. My first EMI will hit next week and I still dont have confirmation of my new 320D. Kindly advise what to do next.

Hello, can someone decode the following VIN for Audi
WAUZAG8K1GY700878
I'm only getting basic details like year, plant etc from the online sites. Is it possible to get more details like colour, interior, month of manufacture etc

Thanks Grand Drive.

Another VIN from Renault - MEEHSRCFFG5000539. Please decode.

As per the logic you shared it seems this is May 2016 model.

Thanks, much appreciated !

Does the delivery date refer to the date the car was fully manufactured at MBIL plant locally or is it the date the CKD kit/chassis was built in germany for further assembling in India?
