Yes, it's auto transmission. Checked with Trident on the 18th & 19th missing digits/alphabets. Understand the 19th digit/alphabet is available on form 22. They called me back and informed that the 19th digit/alphabet is G. The Chassis/VIN number which I gave you earlier is what I got from Trident. On decoding the VIN it comes up to 2012 / July. Not sure if I am right, as the VIN number you have quoted is different from what I got from Trident. Right now the car might be on it's way to registration. As long as it's 2102 / July. it't be an issue - what's your opinion ?

Have you personally checked the VIN/Chassis number of your car? The full chassis number can be seen on the floor, under the driver's seat .

The problems is not about July 2012 manufactured, its about Whether the car is up to your satisfaction level after doing the PDI?

No. I haven't checked the Chassis/VIN personally. What I gave you was provided by Trident over short message. Could not inspect the car before registration, as was held up in office. Will do the inspection tomorrow morning when the car is being delivered (I know the most important inspection is before the car is sent for registration). Just want to make sure the car is of this year and with in six months from the day it get's registered. Hope everthing goes fine. Thanks Wildon.

Dear Wildon,
I'm about to take the delivery of a 320d tommorow. The BMW salesman has given me the number : NN74275 which the VIN Decoder by Mitsuhiko says is manufactured in 2011 :-X

The salesman has assured me its a 2012 model. Do help me out!

This is the information I got as well. Is it possible that the assembly date is much later? Is there anywhere I can find the exact assembly date/ date which will reflect on my RC Card etc?
