First, why are planning to change rings? Is that a part of engine rebuild? It is not a routine job....If you do i anyways - you will need a ring compressor..and pretty much take your whole engine apart.

: What's the deal with changing a set of piston rings on a 520i 1990? Is it straight forward? Are there many BMW special tools required? Should I even be asking???

: Also, What about cam followers? Same questions.

: Tanks,
