Hello and thanks for letting me join the group

I have bought the wife a 1 series BMW a 2010 118d SE with 8k on the clock in metalic gray and she loves it

I keep seeing people talk about E87 and N47
how do I find out what model my car is and what engine if has?

sorry if this sounds like a simple question.

Is it hatch? 3 door or 5? Coupe or convertible?

E81 = 3 door hatch
E82 = Coupe
E87 = 5 door hatch
E88 = Convertible

Engine I'd assume you have n47 Diesel engine but could be wrong

-- edit --
Damn you for beating me to it Matt!!!

Yes 2010 118d will be an n47. The old m47 engines are pre 07ish, all 4 cylinder diesels thereafter are n47 in one form or another

Easiest way should be to look at the build plate inside the driver's door shut. I think this should tell you what you want to know!
