Wow.
Thanks a lot Wildon.
I am glad to know the production date, as the car had reached the stockyard on 08.11.2010 and I am taking her home tomorrow. Thats 13 days after production!

Hi Wildon,

while checking for a used Zen, got this details from the current owner.
1999-Zen-LX
Chassis No : MA3EYE31S00395650
Engine No : G10BIN388869 (4 cylinder engine)

Can you please verify?
Also is it possible to find out if it's Euro-1 / Euro-2 ?

@ch.nathan

You have to look for the month/year code which is embossed in metal at engine bay. here is a reference link to get an idea of how it look like.
