On the E36 3 series and the E34 5 series, the vehicle identification chassis number is stamped in the body, under the hood next to the right side wiper arm. On the E30 3 series, the vehicle identification chassis number is stamped on the right side of the heater cowl.

The vehicle identification chassis number is also printed on a sticker in the left side door jamb on all vehicles. The vehicle identification chassis number is also visible on a plate mounted to the dash near the middle of the windshield.

Most vehicles have the vehicle identification chassis number stamped into body parts, the engine and the transmission. This is for identification and to help prevent vehicle theft.
