    PRODUCTION MONTH CAN BE FOUND ON THE BLACK STICKER INSIDE OF THE DRIVER SIDE DOOR PANEL. IT SHOULD BE A DATE LIKE 02/19 IN THAT FORMAT. 02 IS THE MONTH 19 IS THE YEAR.

    Is there any way to find out the actual number of a vehicle off the assembly line? In other words, was it, say, the 5th or the 2350th to come off the line? I have a 2019 Infinity Q70L AWD 5.6, which is extremely unusual anyway, and 2019 was the final year that Nissan (Infinity) made (or at any rate sold in North America) the Q70. So I'm kind of curious where my particular vehicle numbered in the production process.

    How do I find out the exterior paint color when the driver's side front door has been replaced and there is no label there?
