I just cleared my paying by DD confusion, just in case anybody is interested to know it,
DD is issue by a Bank and is prepaid! So the thing is that people trusts more on a Bank than an individual. A cheque can be dishonored for insufficient amount in your account, but a DD being a prepaid instrument cannot!

Fabia VIN is on the left hand side of windshield and can be seen from outside. VIN can be decoded online at octinfo.com - Škoda Octavia info
Thanks rajcs for the wishes and sharing the link,
Yep, I've also bookmarked several VIN Decoder sites and got Wildon's appointment with the hope of getting the VIN by tomorrow!
Its like they are not having the VIN even they claim to have the car by tonight, that make me bit skeptical in paying whole amount.

Hi Wildon,

As promised the sales man has given me the VIN today. Tried with Octinfo.com and it seems to be May 2011 manufactured one from, of course Pune only. Can you please decode it for more information.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Wildon,

Sorry to bother you again. I have got another VIN from Ford dealer as this car is readily available. VIN is below and this also seems to be a June 2011 car. Can you please help with the detailed report like earlier?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Wildon,

Can you please decode my Vehicle VIN? Its a Maruti Ritz and has 17 characters, but I read from your earlier post, that Month and year are 2 additional characters. Can you kindly confirm if you can decode with this details?

MA3FDEB1S00 317186

I just got this VIN and havent physically checked this number.

@ Mods - am not bumping my thread and breaking any rules. I just realised that by mistake the message i was partially typing yesterday on my phone got posted in the forum and it appears as back to back.

Any website which can properly decode the India edition Polo's VIN no. I tried various European website but they throw up exceptions to these VIN no or somehow manage to recognize them as 1981 VW models
