sure but if you seek cars to compare you have two BMW M5 e34 in the list..there is no modelyear claimed in the seek list, the reason why I add all that displacment or hp numbers or factory codes to make it more easy to seek through that list

Can't you just say 1992 BMW M5 E34, seeing as the 3.6 is from 1988.
