    Enter last 7 characters of your BMW VIN, our VIN decoding service will analyze your vehicle's serial number
    and generate a report that describes the information the VIN contains.
    This VIN decoder can extract such information as : year, make, model, trim, engine, transmission,
    manufacturer, country of origin and options.

    What exactly is this VIN? I am afraid I don't know exactly what it would be in German. Can you explain it?

    I've been into different free vin decoders but only the basic details revealed. I suggest that you purchase full vehicle history report on your bmw or any make to ensure safety. You can save thousands of dollars and avoid lemons

    Carfax and Autocheck are good but I'm using Vinaudit as alternative cheaper option
    Using VIN and a coupon http://www.vinaudit.com/coupon=JQEFR50OFF, I got my copies for only $2.5 when I avail a bucket of 10 reports ..

    I hope this helps :)
    Goodluck!

    https://bmwvin.co.uk is also free and also gives you info about the modules installed on your car and central mileage data (the last recoded mileage when the car was at the dealership)
