This show the general ignorance of people buying BMW's. They started exporting LHD in 1997.

The majority of the E90's sold in the US are built in the Rosslyn, South Africa plant. It used to be 325/328 only but they are now also building E90 335i's for the US market. There are some threads on this board about people finding some South African Rands in their car.

Local dealer 335i build in SA

However CarFax will tell you it was build in Germany, but is not.
A N in your VIN means it was build in SA

and all those SA build 328i's
