Thanks, is there any way to interpret the manufacturing month and year from that VIN? Does BL in the end mean November 2020?

Yes, A= Oct, B= Nov, C = Dec. L is for 2020. 1-9 represents Jan - Sep.

I am definitely relieved now!
I am in the same boat and SA is claiming that MFG date for CKD cars is not the assembly date but the kit mfg date. Is this really true? Would RC book really reflect assembly date if the Form-22 says older kit date as mfg date for the VIN?

Please check the VIN. GSW says it's an invalid VIN with no specifications for this VIN.

Apologies. Was sent the same in written form.

This should work. I tried to check the same in the website given for Hyundai, but I'm unable to get the activation email to login.
