Refer here.Model Year

In your case even though the production date is mentioned as 11.11.2011, your vehicles manufacturing Month/Year in the RC Book/ Smart Card will be entered as October 2011 Manufactured.

Dear Wildon

Thanks for the quick reply.

But, this still does not give the year of manufacture. Any way we can find that out?

And can I have the complete pdf file showing the complete list? (if you have it)

Also, do you mind sharing the source of your information?

Worldwide VW/Audi/Seat/Škoda VIN Decoder - VW/Audi/Seat/
Just enter your VIN number and the car is decoded immediately.

My decoded VIN read correctly -
Quote:
Škoda Superb II Comfort/Ambition/Elegance 1.8 TSI 118kw (112kw)
manufactured in November 2011, production number 303612
production plant Aurangabad (IND)
The entered VIN is valid!
Mods: May kindly link it to page 1 if required.
