Where exactly was your "German-made"car built?
Regarding f30s, I understand it is difficult to get a clear interpretation of the 11th digit in a BMW VIN number. This is where the plant code is supposed to reside, telling you where the particular car was made.
I have found several tables through a Google search purportedly showing a way to decipher the plant code. Most of them are dated, circa 2007 or older.
Here is one, about a year old. But even with this one, the author cautionsus that it may be outdated and/or inaccurate:
A,F,G,K = Munich, Germany
B,C,D = Dingolfing, Germany
E,J = Regensburg, Germany
Can anyone update this information or clarify what's going on for us?
