Sure thing buddy, but if you refer to his previous posts then you will observe that he has mentioned that he has no further data on the particular Chevy number you have posted.

Anyways, will let the experts decide. A piece of advice: Please don't get offended.

I was just trying to help.

Booked a Fiat Punto and the VIN I got is MCA118A5E07026738CMZ. Is there a way to make out the color/fuel/variant of the car from the VIN number?

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

I got the Chasis and engine number for the new AStar booked.

Chasis number : MA3EPDEIS00416160 (x)BB
Engine number : K10BN1381684

Based on the chart for Maruti, and the last 2 chars BB, I understand that the vehicle was manufatured in Feb 2011. What more can we infer from the 2 numbers given above?

Thanks and regards
Raghu

BMW VIN Decoder link
BMW VIN Decoder - By Mitsuhiko Kanekatsu
If you enter the last 7 digits of your VIN/Chassis number , this gives you month of manufacture and some addtl vehicle type data.

Many times we used to look for the Engine Number and Chassis number of the vehicles for various reasons. Here is the location of those for almost all vehicles. Thanks to the Original poster for sharing this with rest of the world.

Hello Wildon -

I have just been provided the VIN for a Figo that I booked for my dad.

Looking at the logic that you have provided on the first page, it looks like it is a March 2011 make.

I tried finding the exact details on the other link that you had provided. It does not seem to work for the VIN provided to me.

I would be thankful if you may help me getting more details, before I take the delivery on the 10th or 11th April.

MAJ1XXMRJ1BD26595

Thanks for all your Help.

Regards

Happy Motoring!!
