Original Car spec. Information

Post by floz61 » Sat Sep 21, 2019 9:27 pm

Having just purchased F30 D3 build no. 203, I am interested in the original spec etc., should I be able to get this information from Sytners and if so who would be a point of contact.
I emailed Gary but haven't had a response, any advice would be appreciated.

An interesting link Bob and the first time I have used it.
Amongst other things it shows the colour my B10 would have been before getting an upgrade to Alpina Blue :D . Also I now know the day of production.
Unfortunately most of the Alpina info is in German but I guess I could fire it through a translator site to see what it makes of it.

A friend told me about the site. It's less useful in the UK as we rarely publish VIN #'s but in other countries they're published as a matter of course in sales ads.

I can offer my schoolboy German translation services if you need them, but google translate will probably be more reliable. :lol:
