The M40 engine is fitted in both 316 and 318 models.

Please note that 318I is fitted with M42 and 318i, 318ic and 318ti is fitted with M44.

Very confusing ;)

the obd-1 318's (1.8L) were M42's. the 1.9L 318's were M44's. now theyre up to 2.0L's and called N42's. but i believe a M40 is just a 316.
