Where was my car made? Plant code 'K'

My VIN starts WBA, which means BMW AG, Germany.

The 11th character, the plant code, is 'K'. Anyone know which plant this is?

Is this a fancy word for number plate bracket?

I got the almost identical printout from the dealer a week or two ago Thanks though!

What does: Type LIM mean?

It's funny that it says 320i (USA) since the 320i was never offered in the US AFAIK! I guess it really means BMW NA.

You should probably ask through PM, I think he's less likely to respond if ten or twenty people on this thread see your post and ask him to get theirs as well

Limousine is the euro word for sedan
