Production date info location

I'm used to production month and year being on a sticker inside on the door frame. All my 2013 has is tire inflation info and a sticker (in every language but English) on how to tow the car. No VIN or production date that I can see. I know VIN is on dashboard front but where is production date shown now?

Enter the last 7 characters of your vin here. www.bmwvin.com or realoem.com

I cant find it on the vehicle. My old 330 had the plate in the door sill that had the prod date in the corner.

There is a sticker on the " B " pillar at the bottom on the drivers side; I believe that is where it is; found this sticker while looking for the tire inflation pressure info.

You're right. It's there but facing outward, almost where rear door starts. My other cars have it forward facing. Looks like I'm a November 2012 production.

I tried the VIN decoder but now there's a message it's been taken down under threat of legal action. It must have just happened.
