e46 318i was a 2.0
e46 320i was a 2.2 (same with the 2000 e39 520i)
e39 540i was a 4.4
...

There are more examples of this.
BMW has been moving away from model # = engine size naming more and more:

E90: 328, 325, 330 = 3.0 I6 (N52)
E60: 525, 528, 530 = 3.0 I6 (N52)
*35 are also 3.0 I6 (+TT)
The new X drive 50i is 4.4 TT
