Hi Wildon,
Could you please help decode the below VIN.
And, is it possible to know the exterior colour from one of the VIN letter?

I got this chassis number for my car from the RTO website based on the registration receipt sms i got: TMBBLGNP3KA300742
It's a Skoda Superb
From my understanding it is a July 2019 manufacture, which to me seems very old for a car i just bought, should i be taking this up with the Skoda dealership.

Yes, the VIN does indicate that it is July 2019 manufactured. Didn't you get a chance to do a PDI by yourself before signing the dotted line?

Not sure how much of help the dealer would be after the car has been delivered. Try for luck though.

So saw another message on this thread itself that since Superb is a CKD car, and the assembly happens here, the VIN number indicates when the CKD kits were manufactured and not the final assembly, that i will have to check in the cars papers to see when it was manufactured but about 6 month difference in kit manufacture that and final assembly is normal from what i have understood.
