Default Individual?

My BMW manual said my M3 'vert is an individual, but my side sills plates don't say it. My service advisor said it was but when I asked about the side sill plates he just shrugged and said he would look into it and call me.

Essentially, my question is: how else can you identify a BMW Individual car? What distinguishes these cars from the rest of the M3's that are out there.

The badge/sticker on the driver-side strut housing under the hood will tell whether its an Individual or not.

US cars did not get "Individual" sill plates for some reason. Rest of the World (RoW) cars did.

As was said before, just look on your driver's side shock tower.

If it is Jet Black/Black - why do you think the car was produced under the Individual Program?


In any case - an Individual program car will have this sticker on the driver's shock tower:
