:mad OK so I bought the car from some other military person who was leaving Germany. I have a BMW 318IS 1997. He said it was US Spec. A friend of mine says that most US spec cars have the VIN on the Dash. Mine is on the door. The car is in miles and not Kilometers. It has DOT stickers on the front driver windows. I am totally confused and pissed because if it's a German spec, means I cant bring it home with me in three months unless I convert it. Does anyone know how I can find out what my car is. I tried looking up the VIN but no success. I am thinking about calling BMW but don't even know where to start. PLEASE HELP!
