Mein Auto: 528i touring
When speaking to garages when i thought my head gasket had definately failed, the reccomended replacement for my 528 engine was a 525 engine. I was told that it would bolt straight to my current auto box and not require a change in ECU - apparently that only needed to be changed if you increase capacity of the engine. I've no idea if this is accurate, just what i was told by a BMW indy on the phone.
