would a 4.4i with the 4.6is kit, flares and running board also get the same compliment?

What you doing about that front bumper? Looks curvy otherwise. I like.

Place an order for the facelift aero front bumper and fog light covers . It has to be orderd from Germany.
crystalworks, I'll wait until the front bumper installed to do a proper photoshoot. Will send them to you then.

In my weekly local craigslist searching for e53 parts I might need/want, I came across a "2003 4.8is AWD SUV M-Package" that a dealer has listed. A couple things seem off to me in the subject line and listing. First, it has the pre-facelift headlights and 4.6is sport steering wheel, but the 4.8is 168 wheels and fender badges. Is it possible it's just a very early model 4.8is? Or is there likely some aftermarket fooling going on here? I especially like the eBay "///M" sticker over the X5 on the hatch. The one dash shot shows that there is some issue (I'm taking a wild guess on the air ride suspension, if it has it).

I didn't want to post a link to the ad, in case it violates some forum rules. I'm certainly not promoting the ad in any way, just curious and it's too far south for me to drive and see what's up with it.

The VIN is 5UXFB93563LN80212 if that means anything to anyone. At the price they're asking, it's almost parts car price, based on what I spent on maintenance and repairs last year!

The VIN indicates a 4.6IS February 2003 build.
