d.maczko 06-14-2006 05:54 PM

its out of a 325 though, not a 5 series so i cant find specs

nick_318is 06-14-2006 08:25 PM

^they should be the same specs, same engine.

d.maczko 06-14-2006 10:16 PM

is it 150 hp or 192 hp?

edit: woo oilers!

celsdogg 06-15-2006 06:38 AM

the 2.0 liter was 150hp, the 2.5 was 189. i dont know about canada, but the 2.0 wasnt sold in the states.

the M52 was 190hp, but u said it was an M50, right?

d.maczko 06-15-2006 08:09 AM

Bimmer_5er 06-15-2006 09:01 AM

The m50 is the same motor in the 5 series and the 3 sereis, but only if the 5er is a 92 + 525i

d.maczko 06-15-2006 01:13 PM

d.maczko 06-15-2006 05:35 PM

the lowest he will go is 1300 us shipped

which is like 1450 canadian
