Working VIN decoder

Hi all,

Does anyone know of a working VIN decoder? It appears most either don't work at all or inconsistent as if they have a limit to the number of search queries.

Here's a list of current decoders that I know of, including whether they still work or not:


[COLOR="DarkOrange"]https://decoder.bvzine.com[/COLOR] - doesn't seem to work for VINs unless they have been searched for in the past

[COLOR="DarkOrange"]https://www.mdecoder.com[/COLOR] - works but doesn't update (e.g. if you just received a VIN and you look it up prior to build, it won't ever show the finished car's full list)


[COLOR="DarkOrange"]https://bimmercat.com[/COLOR] - doesn't seem to work for VINs unless they have been searched for in the past

[COLOR="DarkRed"]http://bimmer.work[/COLOR] - doesn't work at all

Anyone know why when I put in my 2020 M4 VIN, all the VIN decoders show up with a E46 car? My VIN is WBS4Y9C0XLFH68639, but VIN decoders for FH68639 shows up as WBAAL320X0FH68639.

These VIN decoders are obsolete since mid-2019 when BMW started reusing the last 7 characters of the VIN. Only the full VIN is now unique. Some decoders recognize this and ask you to enter the full VIN or offer to choose the correct car from the ones that match those 7 characters, others just pull the first VIN that matches.

They better update their systems too. Very often dealers and BMW own website asks for last 7 of VIN to figure out the car...

Dealer systems are fine, they have had the necessary functionality for ages. It's the third party decoders, most of which are just hacks into BMW APIs, that are not up-to-date. In some cases they can't be made current without a complete overhaul and it's up to the specific decoders' owners to invest the effort.
