Thank you buddy for your prompt reply. The dealer has got 2010 car and giving an additional Rs. 10000/- discount on that. My friend want a 2011 car, thanks for confirmation.

Team-BHP shows you how to decode the VIN of your car. Simply scroll down to the manufacturer-specific posts and follow the instructions therein.
Thanks for this valuable information.

This was the VIN number of Etios Liva. I believe there are 4 or 5 more characters that are required to decode the VIN. Let me try and find out.
