Subject: <All> BMW List of Main Groups, Sub Group ?

The following is a list of BMW's Main Groups. Their price book, parts, repair, and technical data fiche etc. follow this scheme. Knowing the groups is handy when looking up things. For example, when Craig Eller wanted to know the tethering parts to mount the rear child seat in his E36, I knew to look under group 72 (Equipment and Accessories for Engine and Body) in the parts fiche. Bingo. His BMW parts man and the person at BMWNA did not.

Sometimes BMW only labels an item with the last seven digits of the part #. For example, the 16 inch five spoke wheels on my '97 tis (part # 36 11 1 182 529) are stamped with part # 1 182 529. Knowing this, I knew that the first two digits of the part # were 36 (Wheels and Tyres). The second two digits are (Sub Group 11).

I've yet to figure out the meaning of the sub groups number. Sometimes it fits. In the wheel case it doesn't appear to. Anyone out there familiar with the sub group scheme?
