Default Re: Manufacture date younger then registration date

Is it at all possible it is pukka and you have a 'model year' vin as opposed to chronological vin. Would appear on other models in vag this is quite common?

If you read this

And this line inparticular

Model Years ran from August in the preceeding year to July of the year indicated
until 2001 model year which started in May 2000 in the preceeding year.

As I understand it yours could very well be a Y , but it doesn't read to well so its down to how you interpret it.

Good luck anyways chap

DVLA -ups are very common. The third of which have occurred to us ( the other two involve both the wife's and my licences), is that our 2010 t5 was registered as a 3000kg, 140ps, Lupo. All sorted now, but the original ( business) owner, for the vans first 2 yrs 10 months, or the selling dealer, hadn't noticed.
