    Many thanks Erich, I'd love to know how you get all that just from the VIN#, was there any indication as to how many of this particular model with these options were made. Or can you point me to a place where I can start looking?
    kind regards,
    Warwick (aka TechnoWeeny)

    There are several online links where you can find out the VIN details, even BMW has it online now but your have to register

    The electronic parts catalogue from BMW + VIN decoding

    Enter the last 7 digits of the VIN and then click Options in the title row at the top of the page. When you hit print you get your paint colour etc. as well, although not on the initial page, not until the "Print" version opens.

    A separation by option codes is impossible. I tried that even for my E32 750iL Highline which was produced less than 5000 times (according to the info/guesstimate of an old friind from BMW Munich who is now retired), but even the Highline was just an optional extra and no type.
