Have a look here: http://carinfo.kiev.ua/cars/vin/merc...ck?su=wywusw64

I'm not sure how reliable it is though.
Thanks mate. I purchased the car. Odometer showed 38 kilometres. And July 2014 was the shipping date. Looks fine to me. I hope I made the right decision.

Congratulations buddy. You have got a wonderful vehicle and I hope you have an excellent ownership experience with it. Do share your feedback and ownership report.

Hi
After a tormenting month a horror from the dealer i have finally been allotted the Elite i20 Asta
I was told by the dealer that there are no cars available and i will only get the car by Nov end ( i was scheduled to receive the car on Oct 19th) All payments and loan had been disbursed too and after which the dealer changed colours
more details here - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/offici...ml#post3554161


Any ways while visiting the stockyard in Bhiwandi i am told that this car has been here since Oct 13th.. and the PDI sheet in the car confirms the same. Yet the dealer did not allot the car to me nor did he inform me. hence i am a bit worried.

Can some one decode the VIN for me - since its 17 digit VIN

MALBM51BLEM032523

will appreciate help from fellow Team Bhpians

Thank You for the correction Rakesh,

Then we need to wait for the maestro ( wildon) to respond , Iam still in the initial stages of building my knowledge levels and hence I always mention where ever Iam not confident on the information posted by me .

Cheers,
pdma.
