Forgot to mention the Anthracite wood trim so the strip is aluminum not red.

I'm sure you know what I meant , but given that you're getting delivery it sounds like your car doesn't have the problem.

Where was it built? Mine was built in Regensburg and it also finished building around Sep 6. So if your car doesn't have the problem, and it was built in the same place, then mine has a good chance it won't.

You got Anthracite right, but two words for you:

Painted reflectors.

How can you tell where your car was built?

Character 11 from the VIN:
https://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho....php?p=1231273

(I didn't get it from the above post, though. I used a VIN decoder on the 'net, but can't remember which one. That decoder got the model and colors right too.)

Few questions about this:
- Why do they put orange ones? Is it required by law?
- Going to painted ones, are they still reflective?

Ah, maybe someday I'll have a VIN number and can figure that out.
