However, in the interim, I am not sure if the information in the link above matches what I am seeing in my Brezza.

I did take some pics of my Brezza yesterday and as far as I can see from these pics, even the 'under the bonnet VIN' does not have the 21 characters your link speaks of.

Just the $ type special character followed by 17 characters ended by the same $ type special character.

Will get back.

Thanks a lot
The dealer is insisting that it is a March built car. Need to show this this information. Again Thanks a ton.

Hi,

I have booked a Skoda Rapid and the VIN number allocated to me is : TMBBDJNA6FG019785

As per me, it is Sep 2015 manufactured vehicle

As per the dealer, it is manufactured in late Oct 2015 and the dealer also showed this on Skoda website by entering this VIN. Don't know why there is difference of 1 month (I have followed the method given on first page of this thread)

Can someone please confirm and also provide me any other details of the vehicle through this VIN?

Yes, as per the VIN decoding method given in T-BHP, it is a SEP 2015 manufactured Skoda Rapid as 6th character denotes the month of manufacture (J=SEP) and 10th character denotes the year of manufacture (F=2015).

Even the global VIN decoder for VAG cars verifies that it is a SEP 2015 manufactured vehicle, screenshot from the site:
