The 1990 525i, doesn't have a stomp test feature. That didn't become available until the 1992 models. You can find the thread here, I read it from one of the sticky's "mechanical things you should know...". Its the first post under "stomp test procedure"

Again, BMW specialists that are on here, if I'm wrong post, that way I know, he knows, and its confirmed. Hope I help and thanks guys.
That information on the stomp test page is wrong. They got that from the bentley manual and the bentley is wrong in that regard.

All cars with Bosch Motronic version 1.3 and above have stomp test capabilities, that goes for ALL e34's.

Heck, even my 8/88 M20 has stomp test capabilities.
