What does South Africa mean to BMW?

Getting a ‘South Africa Edition’ means you have a 50/50 chance to get an RHD import… J/K! Regardless of where the cars were built, as long as they’re US-spec’d, they’ll come with the same equipment/accessories. If the wheels are different, that usually means the previous owner changed them, or the dealership did.
