Hi,

I recently bought a used E46 and I wanted to be able to check the full spec. Most things are pretty obvious, like you can see it has cruise, hear it has parking sensors etc. But I think it also has rain sensing wipers for example, but not sure... (they are either automatic or I have an intermittent wiring problem which synchronizes with the rain!!)

I wanted to check the car had the later (204bhp 330d) motor, which I did using an online tool someone kindly linked to as I'd tried calling the BMW car info line and they couldn't tell me the engine which was fitted!!

So I was wondering what the best way of finding out all the options was? Would that be calling/visiting a BMW dealer and asking? Or is there another online tool I can use?

Cheers
Ben

Go to the dealer ask them to do a vehicle specification enquiry and print it out

what year is your car?auto or manual. if its a 6 speed manual its 204. build date march 03 onwards.

other thing to try is lift the rear bench in your car, its where the original spec lists were kept ;) you might get lucky
Hi, the engine code was one thing I have actually been able to confirm using the online VIN code checker. It's the options I now want to check.

Go to the dealer ask them to do a vehicle specification enquiry and print it out
Ok, is there no way to do it online?

Hi, thanks for the tip. I looked under the rear bench. There were a couple of pieces of paper but they didn't have the full spec on them. I'll try my local dealer in the week. Ta.

Local dealer did it for my X5. Handed them the key and then 2 minutes later got handed 2 sheets of a4 with the entire spec for the car on it from the colour to the amount of keys supplied

Was no charge for me either. I asked how I would find out as the BMW helpline want a pound a minute and they wont even give you a print out and the girl said Gimme your key back Sir and 2 mins later there it was off the printer.:thumbsup
