I can tell you when a car was made from the chassis number. But it does take a while for them to arrive in the UK

I am interested in JTHB262005018023 The reason being that the teething faults I have heard have been sorted after May build

To my knowledge it is the last 5 numbers that idicate when the car was made. ie this was 18023 off the production line. My car is well over a thousand later than this and arrived in the UK July 06, but it will have been made some months prior. However, this should give you some indication of build date of the one you are intersted in.
