Application of the VIN

Since production began in 1998/1998, the VIN has only ever been engraved and not stamped on BMW models of the E 46 Series.
As the paint layer is damaged by this process, the manufacturer attaches a protective film over the top to prevent corrosion.
The VIN appears rather lighter (more metallic) than was the case with the VINs of older vehicles.
.

The E 38 Series cars  (7 Series) and the E 39 (5 Series)
The VIN will be stamped on, as previously, for both of these series until production ends.
The VIN is also painted over cars.

The new sticker factory plate

Since the beginning of the calendar year 2000, the BMW works at Dingolfing has been using a new kind of new bmw  sticker plate.
The sticker plate was made with an inbuilt “break-off grain” (see picture), which should make it impossible to remove the  new plate without destroying it.
In addition, all other vehicle bmw  stickers, such as the fuel sticker, the tyre pressure sticker, colour code strip new  etc., are pre-scored to facilitate breaking.

The new sticker factory plate for BMW

In contrast to earlier sticker plates, on the new adhesive film stickers made by Schreiner (‘Color Laser new Film’), the text is new  no longer bmw  burned into the black surface layer.
The laser penetrates the transparent  new laminate surface layer and produces the text in the black laser-active layer underneath.

Therefore, the gelaserte bmw  new  typeface Schreiner Color laser foil is to be felt only extremely hard with the fingernail new .
