Engine number decode ?
Apologies if this has been covered already but I can't persuade the search engine to give me posts with the phrase "engine number".
The engine in the E39 M5 I'm looking at buying was replaced recently, the new engine number being 0300A076. I was wondering if there's anything to be learnt from this - new/reconditioned ?, year of manufacture etc. For the record, the cost of replacement was SAR 170 000, about $23 000 or £12 000, the cost shared by BMW SA and BMW AG - sounds newish ?
