Some of us have slower dealers than others.
So, not content to wait, I figured out that you can look up the VIN on the bmwusa.com site. When viewing the tracking page for your car, view the page source, and search for VIN_7.
This will be available from when the car enters production.
If you need the full VIN, enter the VIN_7 code at http://bmwvin.com/
