To see exactly what's fitted to a particular car you need the Reg No. and VIN.

First go here:

http://www.bmw-warranty.co.uk/Pages/CarDetails.asp...

Enter the reg number of the car and press NEXT, helpfully it will pull up the details of the car including the VIN. Keep that page open.

Then follow these instructions courtesy of the BMW Owner's Club:

1> Click http://www.bmw.co.uk/bmwuk/homepage/
2> From the BMW Owner Area menu, choose Genuine BMW Parts
3> From the menu on the left had side of the page click Parts Catalogue
4> From the lower part of the screen click Electronic parts catalogue. Find genuine spare parts and accessories for your BMW.
5> Use the username eu111111 and the password bmwetk1
6> Enter the last 7 digits of your VIN number and click >>
7> From the top of the next window, click Options. This displays a new window with the information on extras.

The build sheet actually includes standard fit equipment as 'options' but it'll tell you exactly what is on your car and also the build date.
The VIN number trick on the Insured Warranty site doesn't seem to work with some stock already at a BMW dealer but then again they'll have the build sheet anyway and also doesn't seem to work with older cars. It found my '55 plate E65 okay though.

ETA The insured warranty site doesn't give you the VIN of anything pre-2000, from a bit of research with different cars on AT. Obviously if you know the VIN then proceed straight to the BMW owner area site.

Thanks, very useful.

What did the "Aerodynamics Package II" and "M Sports Package II" consist of?

Cheers mate, very useful indeed. Just found out I have HiFi sound option fitted. Thought it sounded better than bog standard.

I guess that your car is ineligible for the BMW Insured Warranty. Might be age, recorded mileage, etc. If you know the VIN then you don't need to bother with the Insured Warranty site, it's just a workaround to find the VIN online which you need to access the BMW build sheet site.

I had that problem in firefox (although in a couple of other languages!).
It works for me in Chrome though.

It was bought from BMW with a dealer warranty. It is a 57 plate with 60k miles and I did see someone earlier get the info for a 2000 540 (i think it was a 5 series) so was hopeful.
I will get the VIN number tonight direct from the car and have a look.
Unless it is under the passenger seat...........
