A build sheet is similar to window sticker but they are not exactly the same. I'll see if I can locate an old one for posting. For example a built sheet will reflect- among other things- date of production like 1997-09-09 and if you lucky it will have a number higher than 12 so we (in the US) can locate the month/the day.....LOL.

If you are in the US, you might contact BMW Customer Service, BMW North America in NJ. They, (sometimes) can be helpful in situations such as this. Good Luck, ZZ

As someone in the collectible Corvette hobby a few years back, I can say that the "build sheet" is something that is used as the car is being built, that goes with it as it rolls down the assembly line to show all workers what equipment (including all options) the car should have. In the case of my 1972 Corvette, it was located on the top (practically inaccessible) side of the fuel tank. In some other American cars, it was duplicated in the form of a list of codes that was affixed to the underside of the glove compartment or console lids.

Is there something like this on the BMWs? I suspect that in today's age of automation, there'd be little use for an intelligible sheet of paper listing anything, and that it's probably all done electronically, or via bar codes at the very least...
