Dummy SALAPA

I was seaching....but nothing comes up. Does anyone know what "Dummy SALAPA" stands for? Is it just a space holder for future information?
If I check the VIN Decoder there are a few "Dummy SALAPA" options I have I want to use them but I cannot find any botton or switch for it.....
Seriously any ideas?

Possible examples are 850 - Zusätzl Tankfüllung Export (additional tank filling for export) and 925 - Versandschutzpaket (shipping protection package). The involved SA code is key. You may need to find and translate German explanations.
SALAPA is an acronym for something close to:
SA - Special Equipment - sonderausstattung
LA - Country Equipment - land ausstattung
PA - Package Equipment - paket ausstattung

Doesn't work for me... Ask to solve the Captcha, nothing happen, try again and get "You have reached a daily limit for using decoder service. Please try again tomorrow".

AFAIK BMW started to reuse the last 7 characters of the VIN, and those that are duplicate return a "VIN Not Found" or something similar.

Trying to look up WBA4W5C04LFH12778 and when I do get a return is is for a 2000 M43 318i (and not a 2020 430i).

YMMV

It seems all the reliable VIN decoders are gone.

This one seems to be working - it's not free, but cheap enough. No affiliation with the owner of the site, I was just bummed out that all other decoders stopped working.

BMW started reusing the last 7 characters of the VIN, so only the full VIN is unique now. Some decoders recognize this and ask you to enter the full VIN or offer to choose the correct car from the ones that match those 7 characters. Others just pull the first VIN that matches.
