Hi Wildon,
Many thanks for your help. Big relief as I got the car by mid Nov and was wondering whether I landed with an old car because the odo showed nearly 100km..

Thanks Wildon,

It's good to know that I will be getting a vehicle that's just 10 days old.

^^^ At present you need to check underneath the Boot/Bonnet to get the addional two numbers. As i mentioned earlier if its M9 then its December 2009.

H9= August 2009
J9 = September 2009
K9 = October 2009
L9= November 2009
