If that car in good price/condition , Go get it , even Nikasil block run better than most cars you see in street , don't be overscared by those who don't actually drive that car before .

I brought my 94'530 9 months ago wih original block , the car is running perfect . However I just replaced the block my own pocket ( an problem of that engine ? no ) , forunately BMW paied the parts ( about 5000 $ ) and I paied only labor ( already expired 6 yrs/100K ) . Now I am driving a 01' E34 !

So my summary is ,
1. Nikasil/Leakdown test is nice to have but no a must , abosulately no an issue to buy tha car .
2. Existing car condition & price are the key decision to buy tha car .

According my own experience , BMW is backing up most of their cars . I am thinking again to get a good 94' 540 deal fm someone scared by " Nikasil " !

michael, I sent you an email (dblm1)about your good fortune in getting help with your 530 motor...m
