Apart from the fact that the radiator of 5090 is filled with engine oil in lieu of water, have you noticed that the headlights of 5090 are set lower down the front panel than those on 5052. Also grille and radiator flap on radiator panel of 5052 are set about an inch lower - nothing ever seemed standard on the same batch of BMMO's!
