Whats going on?!

14 posts in this topic

Hello all! My name is Hayden, or basedspider, and I was showed this forum by Rekpoint. I am currently selling my 1998 318ti so I can afford my newest addition, which is a 100k mile 1994 325i. Got it for a steal over in MN, and I definitely have some things in store for it. Thanks!

Both cars look to be in really great shape! Is the 1994 an M50TU or M50NV?

Should be a TU, my early 93 has Vanos.

It is the M50B25TU.

Between european models getting some things a year or two sooner than US models and things happening mid-year, I always have to play it safe and pick a late 94 when I shop for parts. Never knew exactly when the TU started and the NV ended

I just checked and my coupe is a 3/93 and has Vanos, my other car is a 02/94 sedan which also has Vanos.  Late 94 is a good choice though because there are some weird things on early models, like my 02/94 sedan has an 8mm shorter selector rod so after buying the UUC DSSR it was too long and I had to cut a little out and weld it back together.  They offered to do it for me but I had access to a TIG welder at work so I didn't want to wait.
