If you still have the original engine i guess you can check it out by engine number. There are several databases on the internet that can tell you the year based on the engine number, or sometimes, chassis number.

A picture would be great, the vin would be even better. The engine number could be right, but you don't know if they changed the engine case at one point in it's life.

In the UK you can just write to VW UK with your vin number, and they will tell you when it was made..
