Agree with sorting by country. But I am not sure we can go by far left column #. I exported to Excel and filtered by USA only. The number in column A(far left column) is in 200+ where the actual count of my car is below 140(in VIN order).
It may be a good idea to add another column on spreadsheet showing # out of 220 or 740. Otherwise there will be two people ordering sticker for same number(depending on how they count).

I just sorted by US only and the left column shows 1-740, and all the VIN #'s are in order. I'm not sure how you are sorting after your export/import on your end, but if you stick with the Google spreadsheet it works fine. It's just the first dozen or do members like I said that are not 100% certain because they mixed in with the Press/Racing/Preproduction cars not included in the 740....

What is you last 5 VIN?

Thanks. I just tried the Google spreadsheets in "List view" this time and got the same result as in Excel. Didn't realize by left most column you meant the "Row column" in list view. All good.

#459, hooray!

Is the "Colour #1" selection referring to the text color including the "M"? I'm hoping that choosing white made everything white minus the M stripes...

The AW BMW of Irvine is selling has VIN# 75916 and classified it as a factory demo which would put it at 004/740, but the registry has a different VIN listed as #4.

^That car(xxx916) is definitely a Press Car.

Guys, the registry is not complete. We have a pretty good idea which car was first and which one is considered to be that last US 1M based on shipping information and member participation. Since we got zero assistance from BMW, there is some uncertainty with the sequence, especially with the very early 1M's.

Depends. If you order the "reverse" option, they go on the inside. If you order the normal sticker, it goes on the outside of the window.

BTW anyone that wants a sticker but doesn't know their order (ie someone from China or other countries), you can always just cut off the last part of the sticker

I'm on my iPhone and I can't recall who asked this, but if you choose white, the M logo is still colored, it's just the font that changes. Ie: /// stripes are colored, M and all writing after it change color.

That shaded logo looks real sweet. If you can find a high resolution version of that logo, and assuming it doesn't violate some copy right, I can always ask Seche Media if they can use that logo instead? (No promises, I have no idea if that's even possible, although I don't see why not!)
