How many digits do you have after the N character (N is for South Africa factory build)? if you have 6 you can get the rest of your VIN by typing it into bmwvin.com, as it only requires the last 7 digits.
I have 5 digits after the N. I tried to type in the last 7 digits in bmwvin.com and it said it could not locate the VIN. Looks like its missing digits in the last 7. I've sent the Sales Rep an email to double check the VIN and get back to me.
Thanks for confirming the number of digits.
