Wildon,

My Ford Figo is now in transit and I have received the VIN no.

The VIN No is MAJ1XXMRJ1AU20523.

Can you please let me know the month and year of manufacture?

Thanks a lot

As per information from Honda city brochure, it was Euro 4 compliant in Jun 2009! Which mean it should be BS4 then itself!
