There are a few differences between the '92 and the '95 front ends, but they are largely cosmetic. The '95 525i uses the same front as the 530 and 540 models. The Centre Grille is wider as is the central Vee raised area of the hood. The side grilles between the centre grille and headlamps are narrower. As far as I know the Bumper, Headlamps and Fenders are the same. All the pieces should fit exactly the same although there may be some brackets and fasteners on the inner panel that might need changing to accomodate the different grille.

Here is a pictorial difference between a '95 and a '94 (build date was 11/93)
