sukebe is an unknown quantity at this point
(Thread Starter)
I am looking at buying a 1990 525i. For reasons that are not relevant to my question, I need to know the manfacture month of the car. I am unable to obtain this information from either the car or the current owner. The only information I have is the VIN: WBAHC22-090BK973XX Does anyone here know how I could find out when this VIN was built?

That vin number is wrong... last two characters cant be XX (or did u put them there to indicate a unknown ?1)... and instead of the 'year field' letter there is a 0 which is again wrong... so i cant help you much.

if you can get the correct vin i can get you the production date, whether it's 5 speed or auto, a carfax report etc... unfortunatelly i cant do anything with it right now.
