I am going to be buying a 2002 330i and i was wondering if anyone knows the diff. between the 01 model and the 02 except the fact that the lights look a diff. and also I am buying this car from the auction and I was wondering if there is any way I can check the vin # to c where the car came from. do not like carfax not always so accurate and it costs money. thank you for you reply and hope i get this one.
