10th character N stands for Model Year 2022 and that's all I can tell. The decode link in the first page no longer works which makes it very difficult to decode Audi VIN accurately.

Re: ARTICLE: Find your car's date of manufacture (VIN)

I was able to decode the month and year of manufacture on a TATA vin. Is it possible to verify additional details like date of manufacture, model name, color, etc (similar to a Hyundai vin).

Thanks in advance.

VIN doesn't seem like a Maruti VIN (usually beginning with MA3XXX) and 10th character being a letter from A to M with 11th character being a letter from A to Y.

Exactly. I was of the same opinion. The SA is insisting this is the correct VIN. Let me check with him again. Delivery is promised on 2nd of April and as per them the car is in transit.

Re: ARTICLE: Find your car's date of manufacture (VIN)

Came across a good (paid) site for VIN decoding: carvertical.com.
It covers both new and used car VIN categories.
Got the VIN report for A4 that I booked recently.

Salient features, based on my experience:

* They are featured on TopGear, AutoBild, Forbes, Reuters. So doesn't look like a fly-by-night operator in that sense.

* A comprehensive 10 page report

* Covers details (as applicable) related to manufacturing timeline, mileage, theft, accidents, recall, damages, ownership changes, specs & equipment per trim level

* Specs & equipment section covered a mind-numbing ~200 PR codes. Few examples from my A4 report - PRcode 8Z6: 'Hot Country' (yes, India!), code 1BR: 'Comfort heavy-duty suspension', code 0V0: 'Aurangabad manufacturing sequence'.

* Sample report available on site to get a view of what the real report could look like

* Report pricing changes every other day (I got 2 diff quotes in 2 diff days, my friend waited for 3-4 days and he got 3 diff prices). My wallet lighter by 0.02% of the car ex-showroom cost

* They claim to check 25+ markets and 900+ sources

* Besides, Audi, they also feature BMW, Mercedes, VW and Ford.

Re: ARTICLE: Find your car's date of manufacture (VIN)

Hello BHPians -

On the Maruti's VIN, the last 6 digits are the serial number. Anyone knows how the serial number is allotted?

When I look at the VIN shared earlier in this thread, even the March 2022 manufactured vehicle has a serial number starting with 45xxxx. That means, it is not a serial number for the month.

Is it representing the serial number of the vehicle made in that model? For example, if the VIN ends with 857173 for a Celerio car, is it the 857173rd Celerio made by Maruti?

Another query is on the Vehicle model identification. Is there any mapping table available between any portion of the Maruti's VIN number to exactly identify the model of car?

Been trying to decode the VIN for a Mercedes vehicle but not able to on the sites. The SA didn't know much about it either. Request help with decoding it - W1K2131046L044153. Thanks in advance.
