2014 vin number

Went to www.bmwvin.com and entered my VIN number. BMW online says car was to complete tomorrow, March 6. When I entered my VIN, all the info shows up in way too much detail. It also says the production date was today, March 5. If you check your number and can decode what some of the explanations are, I would love to see them.

Thumbs up

SWEET! Same here! Was supposed to be tomorrow. Shows today!

That's nice to be able to confirm all of the options. I see paddle shifters! I don't see the details of what tires I'm getting though.

Thanks for the tip!

Thanks, it works like a charm!

Cool

I believe that the production date associated with the VIN is the day that the VIN plate is physically attached to the car. This occurs prior to the finishing details and quality check. That's usually one or sometimes two days before the car is totally completed.

So for our xdrive M Sport, the VIN number indicates (according to the BMW VIN decoder) a production date of today, 3/21/2013, which is one day before the BMW tracker says it will finish production -- 3/22/2013. That means our car will actually be completed tomorrow, not today.
