Hi folks just a quick question. i asked one similar like this before but have a new one now.

is a M reg bmw 525 tds se engine the same as the engine in a 325 tds se N reg?

after looking i have found a 525 tds se with a decent engine but my car is a 325 tds se and im not sure if its a straight swap. is the 525's engine exactly the same, all ecu, all wiring etc.

You can check if the engine codes on the chassis plate match up :thumbsup
1991-1996 525tds code should be 25 6T 1-L
1991-1999 325tds code should be 25-6T 1-L
BUT they show different part numbers on the injection pump :confused

Im not so sure with the pump part numbers being different. It depends on how cheap the engine will be going for. I personally would give it a ago if it were my car. BUT i would get the engine loom, ancilliaries, and the ECU.
The only thing that would concern me as well is problems with the EWS immobiliser.
Sew what some of the other guys think too :thumbsup
