Build date for the more expensive base priced E90 above is May 2011 so it's a 2011.75.

Also worth noting is that for 2011.5, the Technology Package was replaced with the Convenience Package, which had slightly different contents because the Tech Package was split off between standard features and the Comp Pkg. The Convenience Package was then deprecated for 2012 since its features either became standard or integrated into the new Premium Package, which also got additional contents not part of either the earlier Premium Package or the Convenience Package (e.g. rear sunshade).
Stole that from another thread. Thats why Im saying that if its a later build, it may have a few $$$ more in options, especially since they say "Loaded". So it may be worth it. OP, do some research and let us know!
