Hey all, I was just curious if I could find the date of manufacture for my car from the VIN code? Or is there somewhere else I can look for that? More than anything it is just to answer my own curiosity, but I also know some manufacturing changes took place in mid model years, so it might be good to know in the future!

Thanks again!

with the last 7 of a bmw vin you can pretty much find out everything you want to know about the vehicle.
