Decoding the VIN Last 7

I am trying to decode the last 7 characters of the VIN for the 2012 Cooper S R56 LCI

I do have some that I have worked out.

TY2NNNN Left hand drive Manual USA Cooper S
T38NNNN Left hand drive Auto USA
T15NNNN Right hand drive Auto Cooper S
T27NNNN Left hand drive Euro market Manual

I am looking for other VIN examples for the 2012 R56 LCI Cooper S.

The model is identified by VIN characters 4-6 and character 7 tells you whether it's a LHD (1), RHD (2) or USA (3) model.

You can't tell what model it is by looking at the last 7 characters of VIN. You can enter the last 7 of VIN in the BMW VIN Decoder to find info (model, build date, equipment) on a MINI.

A Euro spec LHD MCS LCI model would have SV31 in characters 4-7 of its VIN.

From what I have found for a given series of car EG: Cooper S R56 LCI built in 2012 the Last 7 charters can tell you a lot. Certain series are set aside for County/Engine/Transmission & drive side as shown in my first post.

Does anyone her have an early 2012 build Cooper S Auto?
