What is the BMW VIN Number?

A VIN number is a 17-character alphanumeric code which is also referred to as the chassis number or serial number. The code is unique for each BMW car and is used to save vital information related to that specific vehicle. The VIN number encloses information related to the make of the vehicle, year of manufacturing, engine, transmission, fuel, add-on features, and the plant where the BMW was manufactured. The information in the BMW VIN decoder report encompasses important details that can be useful for the used car buyers to make up their minds.

Focusing on the 17-character alphanumeric VIN number, the first three characters present the country of origin and the manufacturer information. Then, the fourth to eighth character represents the engine size and specifications, and the vehicle type. The serial number of the BMW vehicle is also provided at the end of the 17-character alphanumeric code.

So simply enter the VIN number and let us handle the rest for you!
