How to find out Production number of my B7?

Bought my 2007 E65 B7 in July. Would like to know how to figure out my production number as I don't see any number on the plate in the vehicle. From what I understand there were 200 produced in 2007 and 600 in 2008 (I'm sure someone can correct me on that if it's bad info)

Odd... From my research there were only 200 made for 2007, my build date is 05/07. Do you have a link to the site that states this is correct info? I've not found anything that's states anything close to this.

Did they build any in 2006? Its a running total. They do not start from zero every year, but last 3 of the VIN is the production number, usually.

E36 1999 M3 Coupe Dakar Yellow/Black Vaders
E36 2000 M Coupe Cosmos Black/Black Leather, Shark, Conforti CAI, B&B Exhaust, H&R, Bilstein.
E39 2000 M5 Imola/Black Heritage
E46 2005 M3 Coupe ZCP Carbon Black/Black
E63 2006 M6 Coupe Indianapolis Red/Black/Madeira, Style 343

They are DT89xxx where xxx is the production number.

They made more than 200 in 2007 as I personally bought 268 and 273 both 2007.

001 was built 2006-03-13 and is a 2006
002 was built 2006-11-14 and is a 2007
573 was the first 2008 built on 2007-09-07
