: Chassis Number LZ versus LY

10-25-2007, 04:13 PM
I am looking at several '07 X5s.

All of them have chassis #s that begin LX.....

One of them at a BMW dealer begins with LZ..... is this a designation for a launch car or something?

it was actually LY and LZ...
the Y is for a year2006 build date and
Z is a year2007build date...

and, the 8th number from the end signifies the model year of the car. so a 8LZ would be a 2008 X5 built in 2007.

So... what does the L0 mean? My friend's ordered '08 X5 has that number.

Good question. I would think it would be 8LZ......
