1M Regional type approvals for Europe, US/NA, Japan

Hi Guy's

I'm looking in particular to confirm the EU type approval number.

Can anyone with an Europe / ECE 1M please check the label on the inside of the passenger door sill (see red arrow) or the COC/Certificate of Conformity equivalent and report any listed number please?

Should look like: Ex*xx/xx*xxxx*xx of Exx*xxxx/xx*xxxx*xx (where “x” represents one number).

THX

There is no US type approval listed in the window sill. Not sure if it is required to list on car or documents

Through the 1erforum I got the following EU type approval:

E1*2007/46*383*02

Can the EU 1M owners confirm that this is the number on their Certificate of Conformity?

Are you importing a non EU car into the EU ?

You will need more than just that number. Your gonna need some $$$$ for the tax man and also change out the headlight switch for the rear brake fog one. Also tires sometimes need to be changed IF they don't have the EU stamp on them. Plus you will need to have the TUV papers made, some more $$$.

it's complicated and can be less expensive in some cases:
- If a non EU car is brought into the EU as part of the household, one is duty and tax exempted. (this saves €€€€€). 'Household' cars are also exempted from the first local mandatory periodic check up in some EU countries.
- US LCI adaptive Xenon headlights have an Ex cast into their housing and thus do not have to be replaced. A pleasant surprise as this saves some 1€€€
- Fog lights on US 1Ms are disabled by little latches on the pushbutton. Upon breaking away these latches, it enables the EU required use of the fog lights.
- For the US 1M no tire change is required.
- The TUV/COC equivalent papers amount to some 1€€

Current challenge is to confirm that the EU style emission number V.7 is equal to the EU 1M's 224g/km. This more relates to the operational taxes. When using the standard EU import calculation (based on peak power and weight) the US 1M is placed at a 271g/km combined emissions in the EU!

for a long read in front of the fireplace find attached the EU type approval report (e13_15_2007_692_2008A_0241_00), with a lot of vehicle and N54B30A (used in both the EU/ECE and NA 1M) engine details.
