Hi all,

how can I get the build sheet for my 94 Euro M5 that was sold in Rome??

I assume someone has this info somewhere, but I need to ask the right people

Anyone else tracked down the buildsheet for a non UK car??

Cheers

Steve

Andy,

what do they look like?

size colour of paper etc?

Steve
It was about three sides of sheet-feed paper with holes punched in the side, white. It basically lists the spec, build date etc.

Is it possible you could contact BMW UK to ask if they can provide a copy?

BMW GB 'customer service' can make an easy PC-print out 'if they are in the mood' AND if you can provide proof of ownership together with the VIN for YOUR car THEN the service shud also be 'free of charge' -

good luck to find a 'friendly soul' with a car-interest within the 'money-making-BMW-Group-machine', rumours have it that there are still some of these kind around ;) :typing:

Called BMW GB customer services and guess what...........

I need to call the original Country (italy) and see if they can help?
Anyone speak Italian!!!

that is typical BMW bull-**** and simply a policy-matter -
did you tell them the car was Italy-sold ??
once they are in the computer and in the correct archive by entering the
last 7 digits of the VIN, 'voila' the details will be on the 'screen', ready to print - there is absolutely no reason to contact anyone in Italy and you might
not get any help there either - 'you must try harder' :hihihi:
(by the time you start to get desperate, send me an e-mail with your VIN and I will see what I can do (as an exception only) and please bring along some patience as it may take a while) - :typing:

Well, I tried again.....

This time (unlike this morning when I got the brush off from a young lady at the other end of the phone) a very helpful chap said he would look and see what could be done...

He looked in 4 different systems and managed to pull up the spec of the car!!
He told me what dealer in rome and sold it, what the exterior colour, leather spec etc was.....

He is emailing me this afternoon the rest of the build information!!!

If it comes through, I'll pass on his details as he was very helpful indeed...

Steve

:cheers:
