535- 92 is the best choice.
I have a 535IA with almost all factory goodies + schnitser suspensionkit, 17" wheels, turbocenter chip, K&N + modified air intake. Dynotest showed 28 hp more and appr 12% more torgue. My friend has a 91 5speed (std) and head on 0-100 km/h I loose less than a car length. I get abt 7,9 to 8 sek.
2 months ago I got the speedo to 230 km/h and it was still rising, but I had to loose up. Theorethically it should be abble to do now approx. 240 km/h. BUt one thing is for Sure: I would never switch it for a Manual. this 535 has so much torgue, itīs a blast. But if you decide for a 525, dont take automatic. Itīs a huge difference!
