Hey people,

I was went looking for a car and bought a 1991 320i from a non-bmw dealer who i think didnt really know to much about the car as it had also just came in . Alot of the things on the car are non standard and the performance is unusually good . I had a look at the engine and my friend said that it might be a hartge.

Is their anyway of finding out? The engine is a 6 cylinder 2 litre with no mention of hartge on the engine or on the car.


Thanks

Go look on the drivers side door on the inside panel. Or else u could take ur VIN number and figure it out. It might not be a 320i.

First off, that's an E36.
I don't recall any inline-six at only two liters.

They did in Europe and Canada, probably a few other countrys too.

The pic of the engine is an M50 without VANOS.
