    What have I purchased?

    I'm a comlete car newbie. I just purchased a 1990 Z4 sDrive s23i I think! No original User Manual. On the side of the car just below the BMW symbol, it says "sDrive 25i". Trying to research this car model, I cannot find an s25i model from 2009. Is there an easy way to use the20240411_150009.jpg VIN number to determine the exact model and year of this car?

    Somebody probably rebadged a 23i as a 25i since it does technically have a 2.5L engine

    Seems the "5" is not perfectly in line with the rest of the badge too, which seems to support the rebadge theory
