Also, E53 has clear E39 gene in it's looks before the bodywork update in 2004.


Didn't have the angel eyes though.

But I was wondering if E46 sport seats are same as the E53 sport seats?

They look different, I don't know if they'll fit though.

Agreed. The 4.6 engine is a lot less common as well, whereas the N62 4.8 engine was used in the X5 4.8, the 750li, and the 550i, so it's not as unique.

Think it would be an idea to have a separate thread for the ones that are for sale....really good idea though. They seem to hold their value better in the US than they do in the UK.
