Chassis Code

We understand the BMW chassis code can be confusing at times, so we have created this post to help you understand and find your chassis code for your car.

"LCI" code refers to Life Cycle Impulse, otherwise known as a facelift. BMW made major revisions to either the body and/or drivetrain that differentiates a later model from the earlier release.
