Thumbs up Re: ARTICLE: Find your car's date of manufacture (VIN)

Thank you very much for such a detailed information Wildon. I wanted to confirm if my car was manufactured after the Excise duty coming into effect as claimed by the dealer. It seems yes as it came into effect in 15th or 16th of March, that is immediately after the budget. Feeling a little relaxed as I now know that the additional 40K I choked out didn't just go to the dealer's pocket

Gosh thats too much information. One thing caught my eye: MODEL YEAR YEAR 2011 (INDIA) (MY11 Consensus Primers).
What does this mean? I though mine's a 2012 year model.

Many thanks buddy!

Hi Wildon - I compared this with the car accessories and found the rear licence plate holder missing. Have written to the dealer quoting this decoded report but he's asking if the source of this is from VW. Can I confirm that it is indeed from VW?

I haven't revealed the source as yet.

Hi Wildon,

There is a typo in the Volkswagen VIN post #9 (ARTICLE: Find your car's date of manufacture (VIN)) in this thread.

In the "Decode" paragraph it correctly states that 10th char is the Model Year but in the "Example" paragraph there is a typo when it says "If your 12th VIN...".

Thanks,
RS
