How do I determine Manufacture date?

I keep seeing references to pre and post September Manufacture dates. How do I determine the date for my 330xi?
Thanks,

I believe USA cars have a sticker on the driver door sides somewhere stating manufacture date.

Else one has to enter te cars VIN number into the parts sytem at the dealer and see what month it gives

I inspected the driver side door and did not find any information.
Thanks for the reply!

There is a sticker on the underside of the hood with the production month- at least there is on Euro cars.

Look for this sticker under the hood. Second line.
MFD mean manufactured date
First number month, second number year.

I suggest that you revisit the left "B" pillar. It is there on U S cars.

Thanks,
I saw your other post about finding the manufacture date. But you don't have to worry because 06 Xi's didn't start production until Sept. 05 unlike their RWD bretherns.

Ouch. I hope we don't meet on the road. Every vehicle in the US has a VIN panel on the driver's door pillar or door what MUST state the date of manufacture, at least month and year. (Hyundai Sonatas made in Alabama have the actual day on the plate, I recently noticed on a rental.)

The manufacturer must certify the car complied with EPA regulations as of the date of manufacture on this label.
