Is there any way of getting total production number on just Sterling Grey Mettallic on 4.8is regardless of the interior color???

And a letter from BMW explaining why they lied.
I’ve managed to locate one out of three, since I knew it existed. However, that’s news to me that there were more. Now onto more digging and fishing for the other two...

I also have a PDF of all X series sales from 2003-08, but no idea how to link it up here.



Official 4.8is production was 4/04, still crazy some made it that long. But also crazy we had some 01 productions! 1 October build was a member a long time ago too.
Great info, more than I've seen so far. PRINTING!

The first 4.6is VIN started at 78000 (Mine is 78833) and the last was LN81258 = 3,258 total production.

This compares to over 85,000 transmissions produced for the much more common 4.4i (ZF model number 1058 000 029).

So confusing with the start/end VINs and now this data, which are thousands apart.

VINs man VINs! haha.

I only recall someone at a dealer (many eons ago) of a sterling 4.8is. There is a pic somewhere, but probably lost to the threads of time.

Hmm odd on 4.6is end vin. Thought it went longer.

Very interesting facts. Comparing this number to what I found shows a difference of 10...

Decoding the VINs:
  • LN78000 is an Estoril Blue - born January 25, 2002
  • LN78001 thru LN78004 are Imola Red
  • LN81258 is Estoril Blue - born September 18, 2003
Cool!
