    Check under the fuse box lid.

    This, but it's not always there.

    I think 318 would be E36, right? On my car there is a BMW VIN on the cowl, at the base of the windshield on the right side of the car. I've heard E38's have a VIN on the trunk if you remove the rear plate holder.

    Greg's right. On all my (JDM) bimmers that was the second location. On the fuse box lid...Took forever to find the first time. They were all E36's tho
