I can't seem to find a working VIN decoder ? tried a Russian one which used to work but doesn't now,I need to check on the original spec of a car.

This is the most extensive and reliable source, from E30 on it can even tell you what options the car was delivered with, pain and cloth code, etc.

Sadly such detailed info is not available for E21's: is said to require a manual search they only do for a paid BMW Classic Certificate, but the basic info is there.
