T3 MANUFACTURE DATES

In Europe on car's papers we never use the date of manufacture. We only use the day of first registration on the road. But with the following data you can define the date of manufacture of your European build T3 using your chassis/VIN number

Calculating the build month of your T3 is quite simple, simply take the 10th digit of the 17 VIN (vehicle identification number) and tally it up to the table below and this will give you the model year.
The tenth digit gives you the model year, these run from August to July and not January to December as you may think, they also start in the previous year so watch out!

The serial number is the last 6 digits(the numbers)
