Hey Wildon, youre getting famous! I shared the spec sheet that you had pulled out for me with the VW SP; and he was totally speechless. He went on to - 'I havent seen anything like this before; you guys can pull so many things off the internet!' and so on. I left a printout of the report with him because he wanted to show off the specs list to other prospective customers as well!

Hats off to your work!

VIN (Wildon) Guru,

Can you help me to Decode the VIN number of WAGON R VXI ABS, which i am planning to take delivery next week.

MA3EWDE1S00144785*GA

Going by your previous posts I understand that this (*GA) corresponds to July 2010. Also does this mean that the vehicle or engine is manufactured on July 2010. Please clarify me. The vehicle came to showroom on 24 Aug 2010.

Thanks in Advance

Its means vehicle is manufactured on July 2010.
Engine serials numbers are different than the VIN.
