Hi Widon,

I have booked a VW sometime back. Now the dealer have called me and told the car is ready. He has sent me the VIN no - WVW10609BT008480. Can you please send me the full specification pdf or let me know how I can generate it?

Thanks in advance.

Wildon,

The VIN no is WVWJ10609BT008480.

I missed out "J" in the number.
