95' M5 vs. 95' 530i

Wondering what the differences, besides the engines, are with a 95 M5 and a 95 530i. If you can point me in the right direction i'll research it on my own, i just couldn't find anything. Sorry if its been asked. Thanks!

- The M5 doesn't come with a automatic
- M5 has a M-package: bumpers, sideskirts etc.
- Sports seats
- M5 specific suspension (shocks, springs, swaybars)
- Wheel differences
- edit: bigger brakes.
That's about it as far as the differences. Most other stuff such as interior bits and pieces etc is interchangable, as well as body panels.

Welcome to Bimmerwerkz.

ps. All of the pieces such as suspension/spoilers etc can be swapped straight to the 530i without any modifications -- if you just want the M5 looks, but insurance/tax/maintenance of the 530i.
