What iteration m10 is this?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

 

Im looking into buying this e12 . Im in South Africa, it is a later model e12 known as the e12/8 as we never started e28 production till 1985, but created a hybrid e12 car that was updated with e28 interior, electronics.

 

This is a 1982 e12/8 518. I'm just trying to figure out what iteration of the m10 the engine is. 

 

The intake looks like the injected m10, but then look at the distributor. Is this a K-jet engine?

Looks like ljet but can't tell can you make a photo of injectors and air boot between the filter housing and manifold. Kjetronic has the bulky distributor with metal pipes running into each of the mechanical injectors - old diesel Bosch pump style. Pig To maintain as nobody knows it anymore. Ljet is infinitely better.
