well the V8 530 definately has more power than the 525, I dont know about the 535 though, it might be close. They are very close when it comes to HP and weight.

For the 530 Make sure that the engine doesnt have the nikalsil problem.

If anyone is going to get an E34 I strongly suggest the 535i. My mechanic swears by that 3.5L! And please get a 5-speed manual transmission (way more fun too drive).

Happy Hunting,
Dave


Here is a nice black one!

dave, that one you posted is either a 525, 530 or 540. 535's did not come in the wide grill

Ah! Cool! Thanx Julien. I didn't know that.

Well at least he can see how sweet a modded black E34 looks like compaired to your red.
