Best Website to find used E53 in Texas / Arizona?

Hey all

Iím in the market to buy another E53 in either Arizona or Texas. We will ideally be wanting a 4.4 in good condition, but are open to a 3.0.

Will also be looking for a pick up dual cab.

Can anyone recommend websites to browse? We have Carsales.com.au for the entire country here in Australia.... Iím looking for something similar or whatever everyone uses in US?

Cheers

www.autotrader.com would be a good start for you mate. You can place the postal code or city/state and search listings of all cars up to 500 miles from your desired area designation.

You may not find the exact car you want but it will at least give you the pulse of that particular vehicle in that area as far as inventory and cost. I did see a 4.4 for $4K...

New Autotrader is nice, but I primarily use cargurus.com.

Hey guys ... Thanks for that!

I have found a couple that I'm going to look into further.... eg

https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/invent...ting=194901859

https://images.autotrader.com/scaler...05cf116202.jpg

They look ok to start with... not sure how to fix the steering wheel being on the wrong side though....

I'm not in any hurry so am setting alerts for price and low mileage...

Also, do you need to have a vehicle inspected to take it and have it re registered in another state? Looking to use it in Dallas or Houston...

Is Carfax the best way to check previous accident/stolen history?

I bought mine from Mancuso in Chicago. RE: the steering wheel, I think the world is telling you guys you've got it on the wrong side.

Auto tempest has some good results as it consolidates results from multiple sites.
