Vanos unit image

Either I don't know how to use the search function...or something else is wrong...anyways...

I've searched all over the net (google), and on 3-4 forums, but couldn't find...image of a Vanos unit taken from under the hood (well, you know, how does it look like, where is it positioned in "real life"...I mean, I don't need picture of the unit itself)!

The thing is, I'm (still) in a search for E36, but a lot of owners (read: car-resellers) are not able to tell me if the car has Vanos or not...I've bumped on 3 E36's in the last few days, and "bad luck" was they all were 1993., so, when it comes to THIS production year, it can go either way (some '93 E36's have Vanos, some don't). The only way for me to find out if it does have it is to accually SEE it and recognize it under the hood, but I don't have the slightest idea how does non-Vanos and in refference to it, Vanos engine, look like! All of the above mentioned cars are 320i (there's no US model of it...), but its a version of M50, so, few images of 325i's M50 would be just fine...

If someone can link me to these kind of images, (where Vanos unit is explicit), I'd be greatly thankfull! Thanks a lot, everyone....

Little bit off-topic, but... Yes, that was the original idea I'm here for a while now (I just don't post that often), I read a lot...but I just can't find a decent E36 in my country...yet!
