Hey Wildon!

Much Thanks for the valuable addition to Team-BHP community.

I am about to buy a Polo 1.6 and there are three VINs given to me by the SA. Would you be able to send me car data on the following?

WVWE11605BT060714.

From your OP, I figured this one is the May 2011 Manufactured Polo. Just wanted to get a complete car data on this since out of the three VINs she gave this seems the latest car that I can get (based on ascending numbers).

Much thanks again!

Hi Rajesh,

What did you do finally?
I am in a similar situation. M offered a May 2011 model 1.3 90HP grande punto.

Not sure whether to go for this or not.

Thanks,

Hi Wildon, All,
please:
FIAT GRANDE PUNTO - MCA1134D07029457EMZ

Looks like 1 digit is missing.

The car looks like a may 2011 model.

At the time of booking the dealer (prerana motors, bangalore) had promised a Nov model.
I am not sure what to do now as the car is about 7 months old. Also, the fact that if i dont take this car, i would loose out on the discount (insurance + discount) and also I heard that there would be a price hike in the cars of Jan 2012 models onwards.

Pls advice.

Thanks,
Arun

If your 10th VIN character is A, then it represents the Year - 2010
If your 12th VIN character is G, then it represents the Month - July

I got following VIN for my new Tata Safari, and I am surprised to see "P" as 12th character, what does it represent? and how to decode actual month and year from following VIN?

VIN : MAT403715BNP16587

Hi Wildon,

I am trying to find out the month of manufacture for an i20 model.

The chasis number given is malvb51blbm350526 , it is only 17 digits, the article i read say i need 19 digits to know the month of manufacturing.

Can you please let me know what is the month of manufacturing.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards
changaez
