Go to the BMW dealer with your registration give him the seriel number he will pull the original engine's number installed on the car. One catch though if you bought the car used and one of the ex owners swaped engines without updating the dealer then you are out of luck!
The question is where the ENGINE SERIAL number is? Wiseman did you try to visit/call BMW dealer? If so any luck? Forgot to tell you we have some expert BMW mechanics on the forum they can give you 1st hand info.
