Mein Auto: 550I
In Production

800# telling me my 550 I is in production and scheduled for completion on October 7th. Once the car is built how do you get your Vin number? Do you have to get it from the dealer? Or can you get it from the web or 800 number? Want to be able to find out what boat its going to be on. Thanks in advance.

Your dealer can get it off their status website. The serial # is assigned once the car reached 150 status. Ask your salesperson to send you weekly updates like I do.

I'm picking my 535i in Munich on Oct 7! My dealer was slow getting the VIN number. I went to the 800 number and talked to a live person, very helpful. Give them your production number and they should be able to get you VIN number. Dealer eventually gave me the VIN but it was incorrect!!!!!!
