If it's a saloon then its an F10, if a touring (estate) it's an F11. BMW moved on from E numbers for their chassis designations with new models that came out a couple of years ago.

Welcome to the forum.

Solving your problem will depend which Blackberry and it's software version and whether your car was made in the factory after September 2010 or before....
