^Keep your spotless M62 as a parts donor car and start bringing the Dinan S3 up to your specs once you get it home by giving it any of the parts it may need

I wish I could. The car is about 20 miles from me. I just don't have the time or price. Way to many projects going as it is.

Here is your 10k "Brembo Calipers Covers"

In for the info. The ad does say caliper covers.

When I first viewed the ad I didn't see the caliper cover info. It might have been added last night when the seller revised the Craigslist ad.

I've been texting with the seller today.

No plans on turning the '03 4.4 M62 into a "donor" car, too nice.

If I do purchase, the new KW coilover kit in garage, StopTech BBK (Cool Carbon provides pads for them), and lightweight wheels will be going on it (CEO won't be happy seeing 4 set of wheels for the Xs).

If any parts are going from one X to the other, it will be coming off the 4.6is & onto the 4.4. I will be looking at reducing overall weight of the Dinan (with the intent of turning it into a "drive it a few times a month" track toy). no need for CD changer, slide out rear cargo tray, OE tow pkg, heated rear seats (may DITCH the rear seats outright).

This will be an exercise in F=MA, with the focus on less "M", to make it perform more like an ///M.

This thing might end up with a roll cage!

Lots of talk in here, better bring my big boots.

If you're going that route the biggest impact will be fitting the Si-Trim impeller and 4.44 gears.

Wouldn't be a first for me, bought the '94 Viper and within a year it was Venom pkg with 125 shot (700 hp). No need for 2 DD E53s with all the luxury features. Waiting for Rob (seller) to shoot MANY pics and e-mail them to me.

Me too.

With 200k on it, I won't feel bad "decontenting" it.
