That is a generic entry in ETIS. When the car is built it will populate with the correct build date.

Hopefully the old saying about not buying a car built on a Monday or a Friday is no longer applicable.

Mine was built on a Friday. The only problem I've had was I had to do a fuse pull to reset sync once. Compared to what some people have had to go through I feel fortunate.

Kind of. The numbers start at 100000 and several hundred were test units etc that would not be resold so call it 203,000.
