BMW PE for Pre LCI E90 with N52 engine

Hi there,

I have an Euro spec 325i E90 Pre LCI with N52 engine. I am planning to order a BMW PE but I am not sure if it fits as it is stated in realoem.com that there maybe a difference in diameter for earlier version of E90 that may not fit the PE.

I read somewhere that the pipe diameter before muffler for N52 engine is 70mm whilst those for N52N (LCI) is 65mm.

Have anyone got PE installed on a Pre LCI E90 with N52? I just want to make sure it would work before ordering that.

Thank you!

I have the PE with my pre-LCI N52 (328i). Not sure if there's a different between Euro and US spec though.

Try giving your local dealer a call, the parts guys will know. I'm sure there's an adaptor if there is a difference

i got the PE on my 325i lci, same euro engine like yours 2.5ltr 218bhp, it should fit fine, confirm with you dealer if he doesnt know himself i bet a small alteration can be made for it to fit fine.

I believe the N52N is also known as the N52KP, it just depends on where you are looking (someone please correct me if I'm wrong).

The 2007 328i (which I have) has the N52KP, and I believe RealOEM decodes my VIN as N52N (I can't double check right now). If I'm correct that N52N=N52KP, then the presence of the N52N is not a pre/post-LCI factor since my 2007 is pre-LCI. You could confuse people you are asking for help if you summarize it has an LCI thing.

Thanks for point this out! Yes there should be some Pre LCI E90 using N52N (or N52KP as you mentioned) which has black engine cover.
