Date of manufacture

Post by Mikesurvivorman » Tue Jun 12, 2018 4:59 pm

Is there a way of telling exactly what date an individual car was built.??
I have registered with TOPIx and got the spec of my car, but it doesn’t say when exactly it was built.

Open your bonnet and it will give you the build month and year on the left side of the slam panel. As for specific date, not that I am aware of, but a main dealer might be able to give you that information. Any particular reason as to why you need to know the exact "born on" date?

The VIN will give you model year
But if you register for Online Service history you should see the Pre Delivery Inspection date. This is normally a couple of weeks after build.

Your dealer should be able to tell you by looking on their system.

Or if you go back into Topix enter your vin and click on the exclamation mark next to the car symbol top right, it will give you date of pre delivery inspection .next service due etc.

As far as I was told the dealer is the only source of such exact information and even he might have to ask the LR.

Just looked on Topic as it used to tell you, but it doesn't now. I think somewhere near the AdBlue filler the exact date is pressed in the scuttle panel and wings. Getting dark here now so I'll check tomorrow.
Gone: SD4 HSE, TD4 HSE Lux.
