Thank you very much wildon. Now I have only one doubt to clear with you and other forum mates. A delay of five month ( production to delivery ) is normal or not , for cars like skoda ? Or are they trying to sell an old stock car ? :(

That is the problem. The vehicle is present in Bangalore yard and am taking delivery in Madurai. The sales rep says whichever is 30+ days from invoice date as mentioned above in attachment will only be sent over. So thought of checking. Thanks, I think I will have to wait then until the particular one car reaches Madurai showroom.
