LOL! It needs a trained eye to find it out

All 6-cylinders have dual exhaust tips. And of those only the 330s have chrome rings around the gauges.

The ones with single exhaust tips are either a 316 or 318.

Enjoy the trip.

Be careful, they may give you a 316

Your car will come badged. From what I found out on my ED the Europeans take the badges off for two basic reasons:

- If you have a low buck car, like a 316, why advertise it being a low buck car.
- If you have a high buck car, like a M3, why be flashy and pretentious. (Saw this M3, without badges coming out of the employee parking lot after the factory tour. Sheesh, the four exhaust tips really give it away....)

So they get both ends of the spectrum.

I so wish I was back there taking delivery again, it's a really "magical" moment. (And I do mean magical, everyone should do it at least once.) Other highlights, BMW factory tour, driving 135 mph outside Stuttgart, and averaging 100 mph for six hours on my way to Amsterdam. Damn. I need to go back.
