Anybody used BMW ETK to figure out final E90 M3 production numbers?

Is that even possible? I've seen other people using it to post numbers for the 5GT, etc., but not sure if the numbers are available for the E90 M3 specifically? Just curious what the final tally will end up being, and how hard it will be to find rear bumpers and seats and such that are E90 M3-specific parts in the future. Those carbon-plastic fenders are sure to be hard to reproduce once they're out of production

Edit: think I figured it out from realoem, but I am not totally sure this is correct because there is some production date overlap, maybe some shells were made early for the LCI's?

E90 USA: E041000 to E041999 production from 01/2007 to 03/2008 and E215000 - E216280 production from 03/2008 to 07/2008

E90 LCI USA: E201000 - E203999 production from 04/2008 to 05/02011 (notice the overlap)

Did Canada get USA-spec cars too?

Absolutely...

It's easy, just choose the car and it will say XX##.

But id use realoem.com instead.

I use realoem all the time, I didn't know it could be used for that! Is there a tutorial on how somewhere? Or give me a couple tips?

Nevermind figured it out, I think

E90 USA: E041000 to E041999 production from 01/2007 to 03/2008 and E215000 - E216280 production from 03/2008 to 07/2008

E90 LCI USA: E201000 - E203999 production from 04/2008 to 05/2011 (notice the overlap)

Which makes 2,281 pre-LCI M3's and 3,000 LCI's. Makes sense intuitively from an overall numbers standpoint but it still seems fuzzy with the overlap and just relying on the VIN lookup alone

Thats pretty low numbers for an M car! I think the lowest in all the generations.

For comparison, i think there were 12,000 E36 M3 sedans made.

Definitely low for a series car, if the numbers are right. Of course that's just usa and canada, biggest market but could be twice as many worldwide
