VANOS was added to the 525i in '93, when the engine became the M50TU ("technical update"). Horsepower rating remained the same, 189.
If you want a few more ponies in a 525i, I've got an Alpine White Korman turbocharged '93 525i five speed that you might be interested in. M5 wheels, H&R springs, Bilstein Sport shocks, Dinan antiroll bars, short shifter, VDO gauges, lotsa new parts. I'm the original owner, car needs nothing, like new at approximately 111,000 miles.
Car is in Las Vegas, NV. Some pictures are at:
