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.
E90 330i 6MT gone. E91 335i 6MT gone. AMG E63 Estate gone. M6GC current...
