Mein Auto: 99 Euro M Coupe
Unhappy This is weird...

My VIN is in conflict with many things on that list. For instance, digit #5 on my car is M wich translates to a M Coupe 00 (my car is a 1999!), later confirmed by the X on digit 10. Now the big question is the L on digit 11 which corresponds to Greer, S.C. plant (my car is "Euro spec with the S50B32 motor), yet when Ron once put my VIN on the ETK CD, it came back as ZA spec (South Africa)! After speaking with BMW of Africa, they told me my car could not be ZA specs because all ZA specs BMWs are right hand drive and my car is left hand drive (the same as in USA). In case anyone is interested, my VIN # is WBSCM9103XLB56588. So, where did BMW mess up?
99 Euro ///M Z3 Coupe, Artic Silver/Black, moonroof, 321hp, NO traction control and loving every second of it!
