    1500 for a car that runs well, let alone a BMW is a great deal.

    not sure if you are in the United states or not, but the m50 was first used on the 1991 here. methinks the easiest way to tell if it has the us spec m50 is to look for spark plug wires. if it does have plug wires, its the m20. the m50 has coil on plug.

    You can easily see the difference between M20 and M50 engine.
