Welcome to our somewhat incomplete listing of information about BMW Car Models over the years. The Vehicle Identification Number or VIN found on newer BMWs not only includes the serial number of the car, but tells you a bit about when and where the car was built and with what equipment. In addition to the information contained in the VIN number your car will most likely have a build sheet that can often be found under the cushion of the back seat. Since 1981, the Vehicle Identification Number is 17 characters and uniquely identifies the type of vehicle, manufacturer and origin.
A Combining info from the VIN and the build sheet (usually found under the back seat) gives you this level of information about your car. The electronic mail addresses listed on this web site are for official BMW Car Club of BC business only, and are not intended for commercial use such as Unsolicited Commercial Email, also known as SPAM or junk email.
Having purchased two new BMWs myself, I have been in situations where I looked up several resources on how to track my new BMW from its early ordering stages, to production status, ship tracking and all the way to being loaded on the transport truck.
The process can be quite obsessive, but truth is that I had tremendous fun seeing the car going through all these stages. Now what I haven’t done was to setup a complete obsessive exciting guide that will provide all the resources needed to track your newly ordered BMW. So, sit back, take notes, bookmark the page, share it with others, print it out, Tweet it, Digg it, whatever you need to do because this article will remain as one of the most important and useful articles ever posted by us. The car was scheduled to be delivered, and awaiting my pick up at the dealer by June 15th, 2009. I decided, after I discovered the delay, to find out where my car was, and when I would eventually get it. Now you can just call this contact, and it will give you the production status, without the need for you to fumble typing it in, or memorize any numbers.
The Shipping schedules are posted as a PDF at the Wallenius Wilhelmsen website, and changes, but look for the Westbound schedule chart. NOTE: My car never was displayed on this tracking site although Wallenius Wilhelmsen is listed as the logistics carrier, and agent for my ship, operated by ARC.
For sailwx, enter the port latitude, and longitude of Bremerhaven, the port BMW usually ships their cars out of. The ship photos in the pop-up window on MarineTraffic show the Integrity as green, not blue – the ship was repainted blue in 2008. Final Destination, VPC New Jersey Port, shown below is the Northern NEAT (North East Auto Terminal) dock. Once your ship arrives with your car, the cars are driven to a large parking lot for staging and processing through customs. The car will spend up to three days being prepped for the American market, and being repaired to factory specifications should damage have occurred in transit, in my case, none did. According to the report, BMW is preparing a new version of the i8 plug-in hybrid which will deliver 750 horsepower.

General BMW Questions Use this forum to ask general question about the BMW ownership and keep up on the latest BMW news. This is one of the better ones (modified from a Bimmerfest posting of the past for better organization so as to be more usable to the user). I remember looking at this a long time ago and noticing that it's not quite right for my wagon, and my M6 is nowhere in sight.
Great information,the only problem is the text is so wide I can't,and I'm sure others can't print it for a reference. If that doesn't work for you, the originals on Bimmerfest were in two parts (see the referenced E39 sticky thread if that helps) so maybe printing those (which are half the size) would work for you? All advertised prices exclude government fees and taxes, any finance charges, any dealer document preparation charge, and any emission testing charge.
All information, specifications, data, details, description and price are subject to change without notice. Please contact the dealer selling this vehicle for complete, accurate, up-to-date information.
I nearly shed tears a few years ago upon learning that BMW was only planning to produce a very limited quantity of its then-new 2011 1 Series M Coupe.

This may not be the most definitive page of BMW stuff on the internet, but we do intend on providing a few informative bits to answer BMW related questions you may have. This sheet covers some of the same info, plus a listing of factory installed items in your car. Inappropriate use of the email addresses on this web site will be considered theft of service. But, another BMW fan and owner comes to my rescue and provides, by far, THE MOST COMPLETE guide I have ever seen and believe me, I have seen quite a few on several BMW forums.
I have no doubt that you will learn a lot from his experience; I know I did, even though I thought I knew it all. The destination listed on your ships itinerary will likely be the next port, and not your cars final destination. If you have a car shipped via WWL you will be able to see status update on the tracking site using your VIN to see when your car clears customs. It's shrunk down to the minimum that would barely fit in a Bimmerfest post also, so there's not a lot I can do to make the text more printable other than those suggestions above. We specialize in luxury and exotic cars from Acura, Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Ferrari, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Lexus, Lotus, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Saab, and Volvo.
The price for listed vehicles as equipped does not include charges such as: License, Title, Registration Fees, State or Local Taxes, Dealer Prep, Smog Fees, Credit Investigation, Optional Credit Insurance, Physical Damage of Liability Insurance, or Delivery Fees.


On one hand, the high-style crossover seems more like a boardroom decision than a practical one. In simplest terms, the two-door was a 1 Series fitted with a modified version of the automaker's twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six, and the running gear (gearbox, driveshaft, axles) from contemporary M3 models. Polk shows that Mercedes customers registering new vehicles topped the Bavarian automaker in the most recent calendar year. This legal identifier also frequently has a bar code representation under the 17 characters, which makes instant electronic identification possible. Once on a ship, BMW status on their website will no longer provide a detailed update, but you can still continue to track the vehicle. DEALER makes no representations, expressed or implied, to any actual or prospective purchaser or owner of this vehicle as to the existence, ownership, accuracy, description or condition of the listed vehicle's equipment, accessories, price, specials or any warranties. The condition of the exterior, interior and engine can vary depending on the vehicle's history.
In a world with the 3 Series, 4 Series, X3, 3 Series GT and 4 Series Gran Coupe, is BMW really being inundated with requests for a baby X6? Polk says Benz posted 274,123 registrations, compared with BMW's 268,498.In terms of sales posted, BMW had bested Benz 281,460 to 274,134.
Of course, when we finally got behind the wheel of the CUV for our First Drive, it proved rather entertaining, and certainly the X6's global sales success suggests that it's worth the relatively low-cost risk for the Bavarian automaker.Now, it's the general public's chance to weigh in on the latest crossover Bimmer and vote with their dollars. The X4 is just hitting showrooms in the US, and BMW is beginning its marketing campaign for it with the slogan "Embrace the Unknown." The first TV ad shows off the CUV driving through the world's major cities as they undulate like the rolling ocean. Clear bra installed on front bumper and front of hood to protect paint from stone chips and road debris. A woman flatly says phrases starting with "Go," while a synth-heavy score plays underneath that wouldn't be out of place over the end credits in an '80s sci-fi movie.Visually, it's actually kind of a cool ad and evokes some of the special effects from Inception. All told, only 740 units made it to the States, and each was gobbled up at a starting price of $46,135, a price tag history will show to be a bargain.Since I had little hope of even driving one again, I deliberately pushed all memories of BMW's 1 Series M Coupe from my mind - until my phone rang recently.
There is perennial gamesmanship between the two German rivals, and the sales numbers suggest that BMW pushed out some extra sheetmetal to dealers in the last four weeks of the year. Focusing on an urban atmosphere is probably a good idea, too, because the percentage of X4s going offroad is likely to be in the low single digits, if that. On the other end was a representative from Dinan Engineering who wanted to know if I would be interested in driving the company's new S3-R BMW 1M. A quick Google search revealed it to be a heavily modified version of the discontinued 1 Series M Coupe.
