It's part number of the valve cover, isn't it?

You should check your car's VIN code.



Take last 7 digits and put them in this.

and then you know what you have.

(How can you buy car without knowing what engine is in it? )

This may help. I think on non-M engines the part number is stamped under the intake manifold. Good luck getting in there to see it. Maybe make a video with your phone as you slip it up in there. Don't drop it!

EDIT: zoom in on this picture. it starts with a 75.... http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-330Ci-33...-/321157982030
