In Reply to: When is VIN assigned? Is "HOT" delivery BS? posted by Courtney on March 07, 1999 at 12:03:35:
: My sales guy just provided me with the VIN number for my factory order 328i with Sports Package. When is the VIN assigned (before or after build completion)?
: The car should be shipped to Charleston SC and then prepped at the factory in Spartanburg before final delivery to Raleigh NC. My salesman says the car has been coded "hot" to help expedite delivery. Is this possible or is he just trying to pacify me?
Hi everyone: I'm the internet coordinator at dealer in California, and perhaps I can clear a few things up for you. The serial number is given to the car at the factory prior to the actual production. Yes, there is an "expedite" code at the VPC (vehicle processing center), but it doesn't always work due to trucking schedules.
