Hi, my name is***** has the N55 engine. BMW does not list the complete engine number on their data sheet. You will need to locate the engine number on the left side of the engine block just below the cylinder head. I've attached a picture below. The manufacturer will also often put a sticker on the back of the engine block on the flange that connects to the transmission.

Let me know if you need anything else.
