    Gidday Everyone! I am New to Bimmerforums.co.uk I have recently bought the above (in title box) and I am in New Zealand. This BMW was imported to NZ from UK in 1996. I need to know if it would have been Built up in Germany or UK. When did they first produce BMWs in the UK plants? Do the UK plants install a percentage of 'local' parts on BMW's? The last E36 I owned was built up in Japan, where they used Local gearbox's. If it helps there is an EG on the odometer face. Could this mean England? Anyway thanks in advance for any answers to these questions. Vanossa.

    Hi Vanossa,Welcome to Bimmerforums.co.uk............

    I think a local dealer could tell you where it was built if you take your VIN number to them

    Cheers. I don't live anywhere near a dealership, but I could relay the vin to them in other ways, given the greats strides technology has taken of late....ha! I notice you have the same year (saloon). Do you have EG on your odometer and where was yours built?

    Thanks yes the vin does begin with W, but I have had another BMW (96' 323i) that had a W as the first letter and as I understand they were exported (in parts) from Germany then built-up in Japan with a Japanese gearbox (possibly a few other components).The vin for the English import is: WBABF420503A88811 and the engine #: 36040503 I am curious as to when build production started in England and how much 'local' components are used and of course if my one was built there??

    Cheers.
