Question Z3 2.8 Roadster engine number - help!

Hi!

Just joined the community & hoping someone out there can help!

Just bought a '99 Z3 2.8, and am unable to locate the engine number on the engine itself. Anyone know where this might be located?

Thanks!


Dale

Hi


Thanks for the reply! I mean the actual engine ID number, which would correspond to the VIN number - any ideas?


Thanks!
