Introduction to BMWModel: AllProduction: AllAfter completion of this module you will be able to: Identify BMW models by their internal and external designations Be able to decipher a VIN Identify BMW engines and transmissions Understand the BMW Group Numbering system Recognize acronyms utilized internally by BMW2Introduction to BMW

BMW Model IdentificationBMW uses two different methods of identifying its products: External Designations are for customers to identify BMW products.These are marketing designations commonly referred to as trunk badges. Internal Designations are used by BMW and center personnel to identify aparticular production version.External DesignationsExternal designations located on thetrunk or tailgate are the model names.Customers and the public identifyBMW products by these names.The trunk badges consist of a combination of numbers and letters. The badge shown istypical of 1, 3, 5, 6 and 7 series vehicles. The first digit represents the series identification. The last two digits mark the engine displacement. The i represents the type of fueldelivery (injected).The external designations are created by the sales and marketing department to positioneach model in a certain target segment of the vehicle sales market.Occasionally there are examples where the actual engine displacement does not matchthe designation. This is a marketing decision to continue familiar name recognition fromone version to the next and to create a spacing between models.Examples are: E71 X6 xDrive50i - 4.4liter E9x 335i - 3.0 liter F01/F02 750i/Li - 4.4 literThere is another series of badges that begin with a letter followed by a single digit.These are found on: Roadsters (E52, E85, E89) SAV (E53, E70, E83) SAC (E71, E72) MotorsportAdditional letters sometime follow the badge numbers and are used to further identifyeach model. Examples include: xDrive - all-wheel driveX - all-wheel drivesDrive -sport/standard drives - sportL - long wheel base i - Fuel InjectedM - MotorsportActiveHybridGT - Gran Turismo d - Diesele - etat - touring/sports wagonC or c - Coupe or Cabrio3Introduction to BMW

Examples of these badges are:Internal DesignationsInternal designations are created and used by the Engineering and Technical Development departments to identify a new model during the design of the car. The use of theinternal designations carries over to the Technical Support groups after production.Internal designations refer to the entire vehicle series of a particular body design. Forexample, the E90 designation describes all 3 series cars of that design. BMW productsstart with an “E” (as of 2009 we started using the letter “F” on some of our vehicles) andare followed by a two digit number. Not all design concepts make production, so internaldesignations are usually not sequential. The table on the next page lists the internal designations, series number and the years produced.The E designations can include an additional number separated by a slash (/) to indicatea different model within a particular chassis group. Example: E36/7- Z3 E46/3- Sport Wagon E36/5- 318ti E46/2- Coupe4Introduction to BMW E46/16- All-Wheel Drive

Vehicle Identification NumbersVehicle Identification Numbers are referred to as the VIN. BMW utilizes a VIN with a 17character structure. The characters are grouped to include multiple information as follows:WBA BR33 4 4 Y E A82019Digit 1-3 are the manufacturer’s code:WBA BMW Cars and SAVsWBS Motorsport4US Spartanburg (not used since 1999)Digits 4-7 are the model code:Digit 8 is the restraint system identifier:0 Seat belts1 Seat belts and Driver airbag2 Seat belts and Dual airbags3 Seat belts, Second generation dual front airbags4 Seat belts, Dual-stage advanced front airbagsDigit 9 is a check digit determined by VIN:Digit 10 is the model year identifier (started in 1980):A 1980 model year, sequentially progresses every year. I,O,Q,U and Zare not used because they can be mistaken for numbers.A 1980B 1981C 1982D 1983E 1984F 1985G 1986H 1987J 1988K 1989L 1990M 1991N 1992P 1993R 1994S 1995T 1996V 1997W 1998X 1999Y 20001 20012 20023 20034 20045 20056 20067 20078 20089 2009A 2010B 2011C 2012D 2013E 2014F 2015Digit 11 is the Plant code:A, F, K (Plant 1.1) MunichC, B, D, G (Plant 2.4) DingolfingE, J, P (Plant 6.1) RegensburgL, M (Plant 10) SpartanburgN (Plant 9) RosslynW (Plant) Graz, AustriaV (Plant) LeipzigDigits 12-17 are the Sequential production number:33Introduction to BMW

VIN Location on VehicleThe VIN is located on the vehicle in the following locations: Left lower corner of the instrument panel. This is viewed through the windshieldfrom outside the vehicle. B pillar compliance label. On the drivers side door jamb.Additionally the VIN is stamped into the chassis in one of two locations: Under the hood on right side of engine compartment bulkhead. Under the hood on right side shock tower.Vehicle Production DatesThe production date of the vehicle is included in the B pillar compliance label.Production date information is required quite often when a repair procedure affects onlya certain range of vehicles. The range is based on production dates.The date shown on the label reflects the actual month and year the vehicle was produced. It is not a model year indicator.34Introduction to BMW

Vehicle Production Anti-Theft LabelsSince 1987, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) requires that theVIN be marked on specific parts of the car during manufacture for theft identification. Somemodels are exempt if the total number of vehicles imported is below a certain number.If equipped, the label is also a refe
