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!
Definitely not parts car money. It is a 4.6is. For that kind of money, I want Alcantara and Aluminium matching trim..

173k, 171k with S/C. Doing maintenance as required, want to keep it tip top. Haven't pictured myself selling it, wouldn't get that money back out of a sale. I wonder when the party will end? How's your Dinan SC setup doing?

It's still running strong, only 99.8K on the odo. Wife keeps bugging me to sell it as I don't drive it enough and as a result the battery keeps dying.

Keep that party going as long as you can, these vehicles were meant to be driven!
