Thanks Guys! Really looking forward to some future mods. (UUC SSK and custom exhaust) Thinking Magnaflow...This guy's is very tasteful.2004 BMW X5 Exhaust Currently waiting on an airbag wire for my new 3 spoke sport steering wheel. Really excited to have a heated wheel. Found the wheel and clock spring on craigslist off a E83 LCI for $40. Got a new trim piece and an airbag on eBay. Going in tomorrow

Since this is the source page for all things X5 manual, where do you manual X5'ers recommend posting my rig for sale. I have it up on my local Craigslist but want to get it in front of a more specific audience. Auto Trader (anyone have a positive experience there?) Xoutpost? Any other forums?

Auto Trader would work fine - Make sure you note that it has 3 pedals, I know when I was searching for mine on AutoTrader that I waded through a lot of erroneously listings looking for a MT X5

Craigslist and BMW forums should do it.

Hey guys - Original thread here

http://www.xoutpost.com/bmw-sav-foru...53-friday.html


Been hunting for a 5spd and found this on Craigslist ...reached out to the fella - Turns out, it's owned by the tech guy at BavAuto! Bavarian Otto's personal X5. It's been the subject of NUMEROUS how to videos on youtube and their site - including Vanos rebuild. This puppy has pretty much everything replaced.. and documentation? Well, I have an entire youtube channel documenting it LOL. Have a look, made the trip out to NH this past weekend and picked her up with the wife.

Welcome friend! Glad to see you found an E53 with 3 pedals that was well taken care of by Bav Otto himself! And you also got a nice score with the factory aluminum running boards as well

Enjoy the truck, I put in the registry it was a 2001 but if I'm wrong let me know
