Mein Auto: BMW 320i M-Sport
New company car - need details

HI All,

This is my first post so please be gentle

I am about to take delivery of a 61 plate (2011) BMW 320i M-Sport. I am trying to find out if this version has i-Drive fitted?

I am also confused about the model numbers (E90, E91...etc)...which version does my 2011 car fall under?

Can any one shed any light on my question....if possible.

Cheers
Toby

Not sure if you can tell if iDrive is fitted without the VIN. If you know the VIN, there is a web site you can use to check the build sheet which will show you everything (on phone and don't have the URL handy).

The Entwicklung code (e-code) is a body style designator. E90 is a sedan, E91 is the touring (wagon), E92 is the coupe, and E93 is the cabriolet. Note that the Entwicklung code won't differentiate between engine models/lines, i.e. an E92 is a coupe, but could be a 328i or 335i.

Cheers Andrew,

I will see if I can get the VIN from the company.

If I can get it how can I check it? Is there a source to look up VIN codes on the net?

Yes, there is a place on the web. Am at a PC now and have the URL. All you need is the last 7 digits of the VIN, then go to this page:

http://www.rubmw.ru/vincode/eng/

Enter the last seven digits, do the simple math question, and it will provide you with the complete build sheet.

Oh, and welcome to the 'fest!

It is a cool site, but using any tool off a website based in Russia gives me the willies.

Yeah, why not wait until they mirror a website in the USA? On the 'net you have no idea where anything is or who you're dealing with. I hear you though, the 'ru', and a few others, always give me pause.

Toby, welcome! We're seeing more UK posters in the last few months.
There's an E9x Wiki way up on the center right side of the Bimmerfest banner. Take a look way up on the top line.

Made me hesitate the first time I saw it as well. Probably more so since I'm a IT security guy for my day job.

But it checks out, and they really don't get anything but the last seven of your VIN. I believe it is a Russioin BMW dealer's page.
