If you want to know the Month/Year look at the Last 3 letter of VIN

if its ANZ = January 2010
BNZ = February 2010
CNZ = March 2010

For Engine/Variants refer here.

You are right!

I had been to the dealer yesterday and from a paper in his hand, I took doen the following:

But there is something wrong here as it is more than 17 characters. The poor executive could not help me. Unfortunately though other Nanos had a sticker with the VIN on them, this one did not have it and was locked.

For whatever is worth it,

the VIN: MAT 61222 19YPP17871

I think there is an excess 2 in that VIN.

Thanks. Even I was more or less convinced about the 2009 year part. But Nano of that vintage being delivered in March?

The number is the way it was written in the allotment sheet with the dealer.
