Can I tell by the serial number of my Bavaria just when it left the factory, when it was first sold, and other details?

The date of manufacture is stamped on a plate on the driver's side door post. BMWNA could tell you, probably, when it left the factory, and also when it was first sold. Why do you want the information? BMW's don't hang around the factory for very long, so it would have been shipped over here shortly after the manufacturing date. Tech Ed.
