Nah. That would be too logical and consistant. It's 4.4 liters.

5.4 and 5.6? At least it was for the 850i and 850CSi.

What's 2002? 1600? 318?

BMW is no more logical than other companies using numerical monikers.
Sometimes they follow the rules, other times not. As for Audi, the numbers
loosely follows the platform. But it has peculiarty as well. What's the
difference between an 80 and a 90? It's as logical as the 318, which has
1.9 liter engine.
