The "old" 530 has a 3.0l V8 and was produced for model years 1994 and 1995 only. See www.530i.org for more info on the "nikasil" problem.

The "new" 530i has a 3.0l I-6 (same as the 330i), and started production for the 2001 model year.


The 530 has apparently been sold in both V8 and 6 form. I wonder if anyone knows:

1. What were the years of the fuel-corrosion-prone V-8?

2. When was the 6 sold?

3. Is the 6 the same as the in the 330?
