    Manufacturer fitted options lookup by reg plate

    I've been looking around for a used bike over the past few weeks and not all the ebay, autotrader etc. adverts list all the options. I've been using the following process to lookup the fitted options from the registration plate, might be useful for others. Apologies if this was common knowledge!


    1. Use https://www.bmw-warranty.co.uk/BMW/Login/Index - enter the reg number of the bike


    2. You will have the following details returned:

    Vehicle Registration Number
    Model
    VIN (Chassis)
    First Registration Date


    3. Copy last seven digits of the VIN and enter into this tool: http://www.bmwvin.com/

    Which will display various details including the factory fitted options. Also useful for HPI checks.

    Nice find. I checked my bike, and noticed that under 'power' it says 142... That ain't bhp or PS...what is it?
