Help understanding VIN



I am looking to purchase a 328 and I am looking for help to understand what the seating material is. Some appear to be better quality than others. How can I tell if it is leather or other? Will the VIN tell me? Is their a tag on the seat somewhere?

I suppose you can use an online VIN decoder. It should list all the options fir that particular vehicle.

That is what I did. It doesn't really say. Unless non of the three I am looking at have real leather. One lists S481A - Sport seat and S488A - Lumbar support. All three have S494A - Seat heating.

This is no help unless I know the code for leather seating. Do you know that?

That website shows my leather on my cars

Car 1 LEDER NOVILLOH1 PALLADIUMSILBER (NCH1)

Car 2. LEDER NOVILLOSCHWARZ (NCSW)

It’s marked under upholstery

If you want, you can send me the Vin’s, and I have some time to figure it out.
