    I am about to enter into the dreaded SVA test and have spoken with my local SVA testing station, They tell me i must provide proof of engine manufacture date or I will have to fit a CAT and do the full emissions test.
    I have a BMW E30 325i Sport 1990 and believe the Engine to be of the M20 version.
    Can anyone point me in the right direction to getting this proof of manufacturing date?

    I always though this was on the registration document. Alternatively you could get BMW to print you a birth sheet from the donor chassis number, that will have all the car details including the manufacture date - not sure if that would be enough for the SVA though.

    My block as 88 stamped on the intake side which was the year of manufacture.

    How did your build go? Have you got any pictures?

    All sorted guys.
    I emailed BMW customer support and they are sending me a Proof of Manufacture date letter to take to the SVA.
