Check on the floor under the driver seat on which you can find 4 character additional code after the above given VIN . If its 0212 then its a February 2012 make, if 0312 then its March 2012 make. Please do confirm and if possible post a picture so that it will be helpfull for other BHPian's to find out the exact location.

Hi Wildon,
Could you please help in finding out the production/model year of my VW Polo? The VIN is WVWB12607CT030205. As per the decoding guidelines, I could see that it is a 2012 manufactued vehicle. But in the Registration details (RC) in website says that the manufacturing year is 2011. Could you please check by any chance the model year can be 2011?

Recheck with the R.T.O and check the manufacturer declared documents. May be an error while doing the entry.

Thank You for this. I may need to check with R.T.O.

PS: That was really fast. Seems like you have setup an SLA for yourself

Hi Wildon,
Is it possible to get me a report on these Fiesta VIN's?

MAJBXXMRTBCA57539 - It seems March 2012 Manufactured.
MAJBXXMRTBCA57557 - It seems March 2012 Manufactured. Any other interesting data??

Planning to get one soon. FYI all: Fiesta Classic CLXI - 8.34 Lacs on road (Madurai, TN) with 3rd year warranty. Discount 5k from Ford.

Doing a great job there mate. Not many come front in taking time to do such. Much appreciated!
