Maybe not. I purchased mine from dealer stock, so I've never really taken much notice of the VIN. I always assumed it was a SA build, and likewise assumed all F30s coming to Aus were SA builds. Anyway, in a moment of boredom I decided to decode my VIN and what it showed was:
Region/Country (chars 1-2): "WB" - Europe, Germany
Plant (char 11): "F" - Munich

Now that I think about it, it was probably one of the first F30s in the country. It was complianced in Feb 12 around the time of the initial launch. So, maybe the first batch to Aus came out of Germany?
