Hello everybody I've a E34 525i 1992 automatic and I would like to have better performances and I don't want to spend a lot of money. What is available for the M50?

bon soir mon ami *wave*

first of all change your automatic transmission with a manual one...or even better find transmission from 325 and differencial from 520...this would improve your 0-100 and maximum speed would be the same...when my E34 was 2000 cc i changed the gearbox from a 320 and a chip...

don't expect with this automatic gears to do miracles :rolleyes:

Why change for a 325 manual tranny?? does a 525i manual fits? How much cost the transmission swap?

In my opinion i think that the better and easyer way to gain power in your 525I automatic is to add a CHIP...you will gain 10 - 15hp more and a better NM's numbers...ehehe

I do agree, get a chip from EAT Mark D. you won't regret it, best power for the money.
