They just want to know in advance is my guess. I am #1 here with LSS on order and my car is coming late August.

Actually it may be an L. My handwitting was poor when i wrote it down because i wasn't expecting to get a Vin when I asked . Looking at it again I would say it's an L. I went back an corrected it.. thanks.TimMullen said:My VIN number is: SCCPC11185HL30xxx
1Fast, are you sure that you have a "2" in front of the "3"? if so, then it might mean something else, like "Touring Package" (mine is base model and has the "L" in that position)...
No, I don't think so. That character is a check digit that depends on the rest of the VIN (some algorithm generates it), and it will vary depending on the actual serial number part of it. Something I read (on the BMW site referenced above) indicated that the check "digit" is the remainder of some calculation, and can be 0-9, or "X" if the remainder is "10". So the "X" as the check digit would be okay...ekological said:Hmmm...I have
....maybe I was just shocked that I was getting the VIN and wrote down "X" incorrectly...
That would be 9,999 per year. The "5" after the check digit indicates the model year..._JD_ said:Correct me where I'm wrong here, but doesn't that VIN structure only allow for 9,999 units?
