    Hi All,

    Had an accident on my 3 series convertible and it's with the repair main. According to them, they're waiting for an ID label (which is due to arrive at the end of the month). Now, I have no idea what an ID label is - any help will be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Thanks Dazza. The accident was on my rear bumper - why would they have to replace the VIN plate for this?

    The vin number is usually in the engine bay, windscreen and door shut.

    They probably need it to confirm which bumper is needed.
