Welcome to the forum.

Before anyone comments, I'll add that the OP is in Australia.... (this forum tends to be US centric, but there are a few folks down there that will probably respond)
Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.

Mein Auto: was 530d, is X5d 2011
As far as I remember the cut off for facelift and a new engine (40d replacing 35d) was 10/2010. Only in the US BMW was using 35d after the facelift. 40d is a new platform, more efficient to meet new emission European rules (in force at that time). Apart from the engine the facelift means new headlamps, tailgate lamps, iDrive, etc.
