For sale, a clean, low mileage, 525i Touring. I have done quite a bit of maintenance and upgrades on this reliable daily driver Bimmer. The upgrades are an attempt to fix what BMW got wrong with the truly great M50B25TU motor.
The problem: The original OEM valve cover is cast with slowly disintegrating aluminum. Attempting to tighten the nuts holding the ignition coils will result in crumbling bolt posts and improperly grounded straps.
The fix: Replaced with a brand new OEM BMW valve cover which is cast with quality aluminum.
The problem: The water pump pulley is made of slowly disintegrating plastic.
The fix: ÜRO Parts anodized aluminum version of the OEM pulley (132mm)
Now you can properly use the BMW fan removal tool without fear of breaking the plastic of the pulley or bending the very short bolts which will bend into the plastic pulley, cracking it.
The problem: More slowly disintegrating plastic used in the radiator sides.
The fix: Evans Waterless Coolant
Evans Waterless Coolant contains zero water. Zero water means there is no expanding liquid which means a zero psi cooling system. Because the cooling system stays at zero psi, the terribly cheap plastic will not be expanding from the pressure of the water expanding. Therefore we can keep the cheap plastic in the BMW cooling system from fatiguing and eventually cracking. To properly install Evans a multi step process must be followed. A full cooling system drain, flush with a prep fluid, run up to operating temperature, cool, full drain, install Evans, run up to temp, bleed as necessary.
The BBS wheels. They are my wheels that I got as part of a e32 (built by Steve Dinan) project I am building. I put them on the Wagon because they make any Bimmer look great. For the right price I will sell them and Ill admit my price is high. My goal is to restore them and get them back on the e32 to keep it period correct.
