Good luck anyway.
I totally agree Barry,
when I bought mine I was under the impression that the X had a re-designed
engine.
After two months of mooching around finding info and then
confirming the info with a friend at a BMW dealer(parts/service dept)
I have come to the conclusion that some
pulling of wool over eyes has been done by BMW.

Even the cams are the same,
also the piston ?
The engine cases however,
are different as is the lubrication system.
