Hi WildOn,
Is there a way I can capture your knowledge about VIN decoding of Indian Cars in a software with web interface. I am willing to do what it takes to learn it . Please PM me if that works.

BTW, I am trying to decode FIAT Palio's. Can you please decode: MAH178636 08034670
I am able to make guess of first section which is Fiat India(MAH) + Palio(178) + GTX(636) . But clueless about next part.

I am also not sure how can I create a generic approach to identify all Palio models in India. Codes for Punto/Linea are already mentioned in this thread so less worried about that.

Thanks in Advance.

Hi Wildon,

WBAVN37000VR50079 is the vin no given by the dealer for the BMW X1.

bmwvin.com says production date as 4th oct 2011 vehicle but the dealer says it is a jan 2012 model. They also insist it will be 2012 on the RC book.

Does this mean the production date shown on bmwvin.com shows the production date of Germany since these are CKD kits.

Also checked on vin-decoder.net and there it shows as 2012 model.


Can u help in this case ?

Awesome thread wildon. Appreciate all the efforts you put in to keep it updated and us informed.

Using your VW Polo VIN decoding information I was able to determine that the Polo I booked is 2013 model manufactured in September 2012.

Could you pull up detailed info sheet on the VIN: WVWJ12605DTO16672 if it's not too much of a hassle for you.

Thanks in advance.

Hi wildon, after speaking to the dealer and skoda, I have got another cat allotted to me. Can you please help me decode TMBCKH1Z2BA154922? I checked the first page, according to it its Aug manufactured, however, last time also I thought its June but actually it was July. Decoding this will be of great help. Thanks again!

Don't know how they are arriving at Jan 2012 make. Please do check manufacturer declared documents.

On vin-decoder.net it is showing 2012 model and the dealer has also emailed mentioning the car is a 2012 model.

Hi Wildon,

Request you to kindly decode the following VIN. This was allotted today to somebody I know. It seems to be an August model, but how to get the date? And as the new model is on the way anyday, should he insist on a September-manufactured model?
