Now BMW charges DKK 1,000 for one piece of paper

It may sound unbelievable. But it is good enough. BMW charges DKK 1,000 for a piece of paper, which you have to print out yourself.

1,000 kroner. Or almost.

This is what BMW takes for a so-called 'birth certificate'. And then you even have to print it yourself. In return, BMW's department for classics, BMW Group Classic, signs what your car was born as. That is, body type and color.

However, it requires a few things first. Among other things, money. BMW wants 125 euros corresponding to 932 Danish kroner for the digital document.

And you must also be able to prove that the car is actually yours. Here, the brand from Munich demands i.a. pictures of the car's chassis number and the number of the engine block. If those things agree with BMW's own information, the brand is ready with a signature.

BMW also sends the car's list of factory-fitted equipment with the document. And that might sound a little silly. Because anyone and everyone can look this up on the internet.

As one of the only car brands in the world, BMW has a publicly available database of many of the brand's cars. A so-called 'Vin Decoder'. If you have the chassis number, you can look up the most common information about the car. And quite free of charge.

The information tells, among other things, which market, the car was originally ordered for, whether it is right or left-hand drive, what color it was painted in from the factory and the size of the engine. Just to mention some of the many information.

On the other hand, the small 1,000 kroner that BMW takes for the certification is small change. At least compared to what Ferrari takes for the same. The Ferrari Classiche certification can easily cost up to DKK 30,000.
