Thank you wildon. Any idea where I can get a detailed report of this? Any site, even if I have to pay?

Also, does the VIN refer to assembly month/year in India or whenever the parent company made the CKDs?

thanks again.

The VIN is when the kit was made, hence it could be assembled in India even a few months after that, when the kit is imported. That is why your insurance paper says 2011.

It should be for a Polo 1.6 manufactured in May 2011 as per your chart. Is it alright to take delivery of a car manufactured in May 2011? Many thanks in advance!

PETROL Car, May be less demand.

Visit the Dealer stock yard to find out latest produced cars are available too.

If you are satisfied with the present allotted car after the PDI then go ahead or else ask from the latest batch.
