Think yours is the 1.9 16v with about 115bhp iirc. The engines changed in 2001 with the 318ci getting a 2.0 16v valvetronic lump and 143bhp

yeah it's weird but with the e46 bmw started putting bigger engines in and keeping the model numbering the same.
ie. 318 with 2.0
320 with 2.2

and that's about it....

oh yeah, the 316 ended up having a 1.9 in 2001 as well, albeit slightly detuned.

hello

so mine engine has 2 valves per cyl, so 2 x 4 = 8v

how do you know it is a 8v not a 16v


many thanks
