Www.bmwvin.com for build sheet.

I think you are SOL for service history from BMW unless you own the car.

dealers can no longer post that information-- bmwna clamped down.
perhaps you can ask the current owner to furnish it? he can request it from the dealer.

Actually even the current owner should not be getting history info from prior owners...technically.

Much better luck with an SA who knows you, sitting face to face....
