Oops... besides the 530i, I neglected to mention a major issue regarding the Nikasil / Alumisil engine block!

The value would be much lower to a knowledgable bimmerphile if he or she knew a replacement block might be needed whereas it wouldn't affect the value to someone who was unaware.

Refer to previous postings on the Nikasil/Alumisil
