The BMW guy was able to find it from the Chassis Number. Thanks.
Further to this, does anyone know a method for removing the shine from steering wheel leather?
I suggest trying Lexol leather cleaner (orange bottle i think). It definitely remved both the dirt and the "shine" on the tan leather steering wheel on my wife's Expedition. I've not felt the need to use it on my 540, so I cannot guarantee it will work for you.
