Question How to find the upholstery code?

I want to find out the upholstery code for my leather. Is there there a place on the seats or something? Could you also find the code out from the vin number?

On your 1998 528i?

Pop up the back seat and there may be the build sheet tucked under the springs.

No. It is my new 740iL which has the Highline package. I know the blue vinyl is call MARINEBLAU but I don't know what the cream white is called. And for those who do not know what highline is look at the pic.

Just found out that the Cream white leather is call oyster! So ironic because I live on the MS Gulf Coast!

Correction it is called Ecru Nappa leather interior. Damn BMW sometimes for making it so difficult.
