    Hi everyone,

    Not sure if this is really acceptable on the forum as I'm not a BMW owner, but I'm a translator and I do lots of translating for BMW. Sometimes it's difficult to find the info. I need, and I'd really love to be able to ask someone who knows everything there is to know about BMW - but I don't even know anyone who's got one! So I wondered whether it would be okay for me to pick the brains of the people on the forum sometimes?! Sorry for the hi-jack!

    What languages do you translate from/to??

    German > English by any chance?

    If so, Im sure we can help you with some terminology in exchange for the odd tranlation

    Yup, from French/German into English - so with the BMW stuff it's all German.

    Thanks!

    Hi everyone,

    I'm a new member. I just recently bought an E36 320i coupe 1995 model and in the stage of getting to know the car. I hope you can help me. My first question is, how would I know if it's a vanos or non-vanos? Thanks a lot.

    if you can get the chassis number from under the bonnet you can type it into www.realoem.com

    and find out on there.
    Alternatively please start a thread in the general maintenenace section (the forum is being upgraded in the next few days and will have a much better layout of forums hopefully!)

    Your car has vanos, You will know from looking at the front of the cylinder head, Non vanos has a flat metal plate, Vanos has a cast aluminium "lump" of trickery.
