: I think your HP rating for a 90 525i is wrong.
: In 90, the 525i shared the engine from the 325i, about 154 HP. In 92, the double overhead cam engine was installed and put out 189 HP.
: The 3.5 L BMW engine is thought to be BMW's best engine ever.
: Go for the 535is, BUT get either car checked out thouroly!!!!
89-90 525i 2.5L 6 168hp
91-on 525i 2.5L 6 189 hp DOHC non vanos hydraulic valvetrain, direct ignition.
