Hi folks,

I feel a embrassed asking but I'm not a 100% sure that I'm correct in thinking I have aM52 engine.

I've search for codes and could'nt find one to match.

The car is apprently a 1996 version 323i. Whether that's first year of registration or manufacture I'm not sure of.

It was a used Japanese import brought into New Zealand.

The code I have is

WBACB82060AS52149.

Oh yeah one more thing is that it is right hand drive.

Anyone help?

Thxs in advance.
