What is my engine code? '03 325i

I looked on the bavauto site for the code, but it doesn't seem to include my year. Is it an M50 or M52? Thanks. And a link to a current engine code list would be greatly appreciated. I'm also curious to know my auto tranny (steptronic) manufacturer and code...

BMW model and engine codes

From this list it seems I'm an M50? 2.5L 6 cyl dual overhead cam without variable intake? I wondered how the 330i got several more horses - variable intake (M52)?

ZF 6HP06 - Is this my transmission?

Further searching and I now think the engine code is M54B25. Any confirmation?

Yes, your engine code is M54-B25.
Regarding transmission-most likely your car is equipped with a "Hydramatic" 5L40-E unit, made by GM Strasbourg,France or less likely German ZF 5HP19.
To make sure get under your car and check the label on side of the transmission.
