Hi guys,

I don't think there has been a 12valve six since the m30 and m20 days of a 1990 vintage. The e36 320i and 325i was a 24 valve unit so for sure this will have 24 valves.

Look up the engine code on wilkelpedia to confirm

Thanks,
Are you sure you got 2.5 not 3.0 engine. Because I think lci cars came with 3.0 engine?

Whether it's the 2.5 or 3.0 it'll still have 24 valves.

Thanks,
OP - for sure its 4 valves per cylinder, as said most decent engines have had this for well over 20 years now - think Golf GTI 16v of 1986 fame!!

Look under your bonnet, your engine code on the car ID sticker will be either N53 or N52B25 (2.5L) or N53B30 (3.0L) or something, just google the one you have, there's even wiki pages on the engines.

Thanks for the help guys, yes i got a e90 lci with the N52 engine, guess they still sold it in the e90 lci in india for more time then elsewhere. Ran a VIN check online it says i got the N52k 160kW engine.
