    I have tried with a couple different BMW dealers and they are saying that the vin sticker part is not available anymore. Can anyone confirm who has done this recently? Thanks!

    The final price of 37,750 is very impressive. But you have to admit that the book and its "case" are worth it!

    It's a hell of piece, and if you have a man cave with several of the cars in its pages, then the price is likely somewhere between inconsequential and irrelevant!

    Thanks, @boomster. I bid on it. If I get it, will have to do until a black over crema shows up at some point.

    Good luck, we have the images here that I can get printed for you, but you will have to find or exchange the crema leather.

    Is it normal ? or does it mean that one of them is "fake"

    Hi Benoit,

    The picture with the car in transport cover is used for rare color combinations (e.g red/crema) and individual colors

    You are right! The differences you mention can happen when the book is not issued to the car. A lot of first owners sold the car without the book and the new owner bought another book from another car and so on....

    Most likely not "home made" as the book would be quite difficult (if not impossible) to duplicate from scratch. Just not the same book that came with the car originally. For example I have a book that I was able to get from BMWNA (Bill Stuart - RIP) quite some time after I had purchased my car in 2005 once I learned from this board there was a chance they might still have them which they did at the time. Apparently some never were delivered to the customers for some reason. So I have the book, but with a different VIN plate than my VIN.

    The VIN sticker is an official BMW part (71 212 122 583). I have heard that BMWNA is not that cooperative (anymore) but in Europe you can still order the sticker via an official BMW garage. Nine years back I bought the book and changed the sticker.
