Is that a 4.6/4.8 exhaust I spy too? Beautiful. I did the same with my Topazblau car

Ahh thanks for pointing that out! I actually did not know that - it came from the PO I believe 🙏

4.6 is bolt on, 4.8 sounds better but requires welding.

Manual E53 round two for me! Sold my 01í 5 speed in 2022 and missed it since. A couple weeks ago I was going to my local pick-and-pull and noticed this in the parking lot out front. Met the guy in the yard looking for comfort seats for it, and long story short Iím buying it this week! Estoril Blue, six speed, sport package, no pano roof, no TPMS, and more! Itís definitely not perfect but itís been cared for itís whole life!

Awesome find!!
She looks pretty well maintained and clean. I would love to see the maintenance book!!

Please let me know what EXACT phrase/words you used to explain to your wife about going to a parts yard and instead buying this beauty, so that she hasn't issued the sofa sleeper challenge!
