How can I get an option list from a VIN?

I have tried the VIN decoder but it is only giving me base car info (base price, standard equipment, etc.
I am looking to purchase a 2017 JCW used and need to see the exact option list before I agree to purchase (as I am not purchasing locally).

THANKS ALL-

I have tried that one but the info isn't very clear- it mixes standard equip with optional equip, etc. Porsche VIN decoders are so much better! :(

Seemed to have everything correct on my car. Porsche charges more so maybe they pay for better software programmers when they aren't busy defeating the pollution control programming.

The bimmer.work site worked perfectly for both my cars

I also double checked it with the mdecoder site, everything matched up
