E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

Can you tell me if this is the m42 or m44?

Just as the title says I bought an e30 and was told the e30s didn't come with plastic oil filter housings so maybe it's been swapped to an m44?

Can't go by the oil filter housing/cap. That's definitely an M42.

The "log" style intake only came on the M42 and all the other components seem to be correct. Looks like someone changed the oil filter housing.
