Hmmm... interesting... so were these gray market cars sold by BMWNA or privately imported? Aside from the differences you mentioned, is there a reason why one should prefer one over another?

How can you tell if a car is Euro version or not? (e.g. VIN - if so, car fax???) how can you tell if the car is a gray market car?

Thanks in advance for your response.

THe difference between US/Euro is: close ratio transmission, 3:25 diff. They also had options for heated seats in earlier years, where here was only 91. I have a gray market car that was in the US on 01/87 so there were a few cars around before they officially imported them here.
