Hi!
An update-
Quite surprisingly and well ahead of time, I got a prompt call from the Sales Manager, Harpreet Ford, Gurgaon regarding delivery of my vehicle. They told me that my car would reach their stockyard tomorrow evening and that I can take away my car on 23rd July if I pay by cash. But, the problem is that I wouldn't be paying in cash, so, my father decided that we shall get our car on Sunday but, maybe I shall convince him to get it earlier, he went on a business trip to Mumbai today and will return tomorrow evening, let's see how it goes. I can't WAIT!!!!

Now, a question, what all things should I NOT do before performing the PDI on my car's delivery day? Please tell me.
What should be my course of action on reaching there? Be a bit illustrative.

Thanks for explaining the VIN code, manufacturer-wise. Just booked a Punto and it'll help to be informed before I go for the PDI.

hi wildon, could you please decode the following VIN: -

MAT4030819NG07609

Posting this on behalf of a friend who is getting a heavy discount on a 'new' BS3 Tata Safari from both Prerana and Concorde in bangalore. He suspects that this might have been used as a test drive vehicle and wants to get as much info as he can gather.

Many thanks.

Thank you, Wildon. I'll look forward to the date of production detail. I'm sensing an anomaly and want to be sure before acting on it.

Hello Wildon - I'm back with another request.
Here's the VIN for my a new booking that I've made: MAJ1XXMRJ1AM35374

I figure its July 2010 make, from the table that you've shared. Could you produce additional details for me?

Appreciate your contribution here.
