Mein Auto: 2012 535i
New to the F10 World

Greetings all,

I'm an ex-E39 owner and am now the proud owner of a '12 535. I got a good deal on a pre-owned vehicle and have a question.

How do I know what "packages" or options were installed on the vehicle? I know that it has the sport pkg, premium (+ because the car has the rear window shades), navigation, rear camera, rear parking guidance - but that's just from what I can "tell". I figured out that I had the upgraded stereo system because of the Equalizer option recently... I'm also assuming it has enhanced BT because I have been able to play Pandora on it, but no luck on getting the album art to display.

Is there a way to tell what options the car came with by checking the VIN? The dealership I bought the car from was a MB dealership and they didn't have much info... I'm wondering what else it may have - i.e. DHP, etc. Are there any other easter eggs that'll point me to what else it might have?

Thanks in advance!!

Welcome to the Forum!

Our US-based friends here will certainly tell you more about the "packaging" you have, but individual options can all be read from your VIN - e.g. at bmwvin.com.

Good luck, and enjoy your F10!
