I had been using mdecoder.com to check the build sheet options on several X5’s I was looking at. Up until a couple of weeks ago, it was free to use. Now the site has changed to a pay site (e.g., allows 5 VIN checks for 5 Euros).
Is there a site that is free and shows the build sheet specs for BMW’s??

I had the same problem and did a ton of searching before I found this:

Make sure to skip down the page a little and actually click the blue "decode" button. If you fall for the ad directly under the VIN entry box, it'll take you elsewhere. Good luck!

That's strange. It works for me. Try using my VIN: WBAVM5C50EVV92411. If that works for you, then you know the issue is with your VIN (maybe a model year that isn't in their DB)? If my VIN doesn't work for you, then maybe you're clicking on one of the ads (?).

At this very moment mdecoder.com worked fine for me. Check your browser for malware and dump your cookies. I use a crippled browser.

Welcome to Bimmerfest!

I edited your posting to remove the spam link. If you post similar again I'll be forced to take action. You have been warned. If it was indeed posted innocently, my apologies.

If you actually need a free VIN decoder, as others have noted, this one works:
