Does my BMW 1 Series have a DMF?

Does the BMW 1 Series (2009 2 litre petrol) have a dual mass flywheel? Present mileage 8550. If it does then when should I expect trouble? Genuine low mileage car, carefully driven.

I don't know. DMFs are not strictly necessary with a petrol engine and I have not heard of any problems with the clutch or flywheel of this model with petrol engines.
