It was suggested that the pre Feb. 2002 transmission and transfer case was better suited for the higher Hp and Tq. Also, UUC cannot fabricate a DSSR for post Feb. 2002 through 2006.

Interior is gray.

I just put 10 grand into the transmission, rear main seal, flywheel, clutch, bearings, guibos, EVERYTHING was done. The clutch is still breaking in and itís still under warranty.

It WILL sell for more than $10,000.

As we've mentioned. Give BAT an email and see what they say. They'll have much more info about what has been or might sell for more than market value dictates. That's what they do all day. We had a couple members contact them with low-mileage 4.8's/4.6's and were turned down but yours has an extra bit of flair with the MT and boost.

E53's are just not that hot yet in the enthusiast world yet... and, though slowly heating up, the ones bringing $15k are low mileage 4.8's and 4.6's. Yours could definitely be the exception being an MT and boosted reliably. Please keep this thread updated with what you get for it. Definitely wish you all the best with it and hope you get all you want. If you just dropped $10k into it, might be a good time to enjoy it and let the market rise?

BTW, I had that exact boost gauge in an E30 turbo 318is. Very cool looking gauge.
