The 535i has more grunt but an M50 engine 525i is very refined and is a bulletproof engine. The 3m5 M30 engine requires more ongoing maintenance but is a suerlative engine in it own right. Having driven both I love the grunt of the 535i but dont get much chance in Sydney traffic to use it. On the highway the differences are even less. The high gearing in the 525i lets it keep up with anything.

Very happy with my 525iA.

'94 525iA
