Are people just worried about being tracked down? Never bothered me, but I guess I could see how some would be.

Many vehicles now have the full VIN clearly stamped on a metal plate underneath the windscreen....

The access to a VIN does not bother me as the serial numbers are available as open sourced data from any BMW dealership sales/service system. It not like we have Bugattis where the grey market can build one from a jig and end up with some serious $$$$.

Agreed. This has always been my sentiment regarding VINs... plus anyone these days who really wants to find someone/something usually can through various payed internet information sites.

Don't get me wrong. I understand people's trepidation for sure. I don't have facebook, instagram, or any other social media accounts besides forums. So we all have our paranoias.
