I'm looking on eBay for replacement parts for my E90 320i 2006, but I can't find anything for it. In the results I always find replacement parts for the 325i, 328i, etc., but not for my 320i 2006. I would like to know if someone could guide me and tell me which other model I can buy parts for my vehicle.

Thanks

  • Check out different suppliers : ebay is not the only purveyor of motor spares. Do note your question will be closed as it is essentially a shopping question.

  • Ahhh i just want to know, if the 320i use the same parts as the 328i. Coils, o2 sensor, etc

  • It would help if you would be more specific about the part that you are looking for. Without that knowledge, we're trying to guess what you're planning.

Your 320i is a European model. If you're looking for parts from the States, you won't find them there. Looking on this website, I found a Bosch part number for your ignition coil which is PN: 0221504471 ... here in the States, the coil for a 325i is shown as Bosch PN: 0221504470. The two parts certainly look the same and are probably interchangeable, but there is no guarantee. From the looks of it, the 4470 is used for all of these models available in the US:

It is very possible this coil will work in your vehicle. At the price point, it may be worth your time to try (unless you can actually get the 4471 version).

Paulster2 has the right idea but the best answer for BMWs is to look at realoem.com this provides a view into the actual BMW parts database. It also covers all markets, so you can easily figure out what parts are on your car and then by clicking on the part number it will show you all the cars where that part was used.

In the case of your ignition coil you will get something like this:

12137559842
Ignition coil
DELPHI
From:12/01/2012To:-Weight:0.250 kgPrice:
Supersedes:
12137638477 (04/01/2012 — 09/30/2013), Exchangeable    retrospectively
12137594935 (01/01/2009 — 06/19/2017), Exchangeable retrospectively

12137571644 (12/01/2006 — 10/12/2007)

Part 12137559842 was found on the following E90 vehicles:
3' E90, 316i, Sedan, N43, EUR, (VF31) : Ignition coil/spark plug
3' E90, 316i, Sedan, N43, EUR, (VF32) : Ignition coil/spark plug
3' E90, 318i, Sedan, N43, EUR, (VF51) : Ignition coil/spark plug
3' E90, 318i, Sedan, N43, EUR, (VF52) : Ignition coil/spark plug
3' E90, 320i, Sedan, N43, EUR, (VF91) : Ignition coil/spark plug
3' E90, 320i, Sedan, N43, EUR, (VF92) : Ignition coil/spark plug
3' E90, 325i, Sedan, N53, EUR, (VE31) : Ignition coil/spark plug
3' E90, 325i, Sedan, N53, EUR, (VE32) : Ignition coil/spark plug
3' E90, 325xi, Sedan, N53, EUR, (VE51) : Ignition coil/spark plug
3' E90, 330i, Sedan, N53, EUR, (VE71) : Ignition coil/spark plug
3' E90, 330i, Sedan, N53, EUR, (VE72) : Ignition coil/spark plug
3' E90, 330xi, Sedan, N53, EUR, (VE91) : Ignition coil/spark plug

So, it looks like the coil is the same between both engines in Europe, but it also looks to be market specific. Don't take that a definitive, I had to make some guesses about your car to get there, and I might be starting from a wrong part.

BMW is all about reusing parts across their various product lines. I use this all the time when working on my older BMW to track down parts.
