I'm trying to read the code on an '05 BMW 545....the number starts with WBANB335...which I guess is the model.......the next numbers are 95B089455...what do these numbers indicate....Thanks D7
W -- Germany.

BA -- BMW Munich. BS is BMW Motorsports (M cars)

NB33 designates a 2004 or 2005 e60 with a N62 motor ---> A 545i

As new motors said, the last 7 are the serial number and uniquely identify the car.

I can tell your car was built in April of 2005.

BMW has bent the rules and used W for BMWs assembled outside of Germany. For example our Austrian built X3 starts with WBX.
