This is really good info. It is an F30 335 AWD which will have a 3B93 code I'm guessing. The EU model would have a 3B91 code. What would cause them to not equivocate that they are both the same? Same engine, transmission etc. Emissions might be an issue but I heard the Swiss will take or equivocate US emission standards for newer models.
because they are not the same . there is no reason why they should have even the same engine, although in reality most would. BMW gave them different type approvals for a reason. There are lots of differences. particularly the engine ECU settings which would likely deliver both different emissions and different maximum speed limiter.

My TII (US), E30 M3 (EU), E60 M5 (US) and R53 mini (EU) all have a lot of differences between the US and Euro specs. The E30 even has a completely different (and far inferior) transmission in US models.
