Beautiful car. Maybe hold it for the daughter to drive when she heads off to college? I'm in Sebring, FL for the rest of the week racing but if you roll through the Queen City after Monday, let me know. I owe you a dinner at the lake.

What a great find. It looks pristine. Now I have 04 envy.

Well, now that you mention it, I dunno. My 2004 4.8is came with the donut. I thought there was a thread on here that went through the hows and whats. Of course, never having plans to own a 4.4, I haven't paid one LICK of attention to the discussions ab them.

I guess I have some catching up to do.
  • Like, is the N62 4.4 a belt driven fan? It's not on the 4.8. (Found it.)
  • Do the N62 4.8 and 4.4 share that damn alternator bracket gasket weakness?
  • Do the N62 4.4's have an oil cooler up front? Transmission I think? I forget.
  • Is the air filter the same? I have an extra K&N I rotate in on the 4.8. I was gonna take it with for the long ride home.
  • Is the 4.4 cooling system different from the 4.8? Mine did great until I replaced it proactively at ~125k miles (think I found it)
  • Is the oil filter the same? Alternator? What other things are unique?

Of course, I could look it all up, but where's the fun in that? I'm looking for the N62 4.4 folks that I suddenly need pay a lot more attention to?

Amazing find! Looks like a really nice platform if you wanted to add iS flares and wheels. Alpine looks great. I am on #2 E53, I've contemplated finding another!

It’s an addiction. We’re on number 2 and 3 now.

Titz 'new' X5 PropellerHead!

I like/sort of love our orig/current '01, and will hang onto it for awhile longer, but I have sublimated my Jones to ever have another...

That new to you X found a good home, I suspect!
