Yeah, I can handle it no matter what happens with the motor. The 4.6 motors are quite hard to find so I'll do a head/valve job if I have to haha

It's an addiction! Though to be fair I don't hoard all the cars I buy, I generally do sell them so my garage doesn't get too crazy. Right now I have this X5 4.6, my 2000 540i Touring, my Hyundai, and a non-running 1987 Porsche 944.

I hope I get my Imola red 2003 some day.

I've been following your thread, hopefully it all works out for you! An Imola 4.6 is the best one you can get.

Eh, I don't buy quite enough cars to qualify for that title haha. And I've only owned one M5 so far.

Thanks! As I say, at 200k+ miles, these cars are just getting warmed up!

Thanks! I'm loving the community already The M62 is a good engine aside from the guides— it doesn't burn oil, it doesn't have a tendency to smoke, and if taken care of they can be very long-lived.

With that much experience in the M62... you should be quite an asset here, welcome.

Thanks! I'm planning on writing a pretty comprehensive DIY when I do the guides on this X5 and on a 2001 740i (gonna do both at the same time).
