Hi Wildon, This is a good news for me as now, I can decode the month/year of the ANHC that I planning take delivery some time next week. Meanwhile, can you please give me the valid year/month codes as far as a Honda VIN is concerned ?

^^ Like i stated in the above 2 posts Look for the 9th and 10th digit of your ANHC vin.
9th digit represents Month and 10th represents Year

If 9th digit is
H=Aug
J= Sep
K= Oct
L= Nov
M= Dec

if 10th digit is

9= Year 2009
