Estoril Blue 4.8is

Hey guys I just made a for sale thread. I know a lot of people stay in this part of the forum and not the classifieds so just thought I would give you guys a heads up. Check it out if you are in the market. Thanks

I lo-o-ve estoril on a 4.8is, but I think you need to do some work on the price of a 100k mile E53. Best of luck with the sale.

Understandable. And that is why I stated after the price that it is Or Best Offer. I'm not expecting to get $19K for it. That's just a starting point. If someone is seriously interested I am sure they will make an offer.

I believe thats LeMans Blue unless its an Individual. Estoril was only on 02 and 03 4.6's

EDIT: I stand corrected I was advised that was not available after 03 on x5. Cool

Yes, Estoril Blue was a common color on the 2002-2003 X5's. The 4.6is to be exact. In 2004 a very limited number of facelifted 4.8is were produced in Estoril Blue.

Then the color was discontinued and changed to LeMans blue. That is why an Estoril Blue 4.8is is so rare.

If you know of anyone that might be interested please let them know. I am in the market for a new diesel and would prefer to sell the X5 sooner rather than later. Thanks guys.

Also if you guys have any tips on selling or know of other enthusiast forums where it would be appreciated, please let me know.

Considering the rarity of the Estoril 4.8is, I think your price is more than fair.

Is this labelled as an "individual" build? It should say Individual beneath the paint code in the engine bay.

Anyone who loves Estoril and wants a 4.8is has no other choice but to buy yours. This truck is so rare, the odds of finding another one are so low, one should be willing to PAY UP.

Good luck with your sale.

Thanks for the kind words, man. I'm pretty sure it's not an individual build. From what I know there were only less than 40 X5 4.8is made in 2004 that came in Estoril Blue. Once those were done Estoril Blue was not seen on an X5 until the release of the 2011 X5 M's. So I would say that's pretty darn rare

I think I am being flexible with the price, considering that I am willing to negotiate. Especially since I want to buy my new diesel already.

No pressure guys but I am working on a trade at two dealerships. So if you were thinking about it please inquire soon. I have no reason to lie. Just would rather have it go to a fellow forum member. I'd say I'll have it another two to three days before I make a deal with a dealership.

If you are local come down and see it for yourself.
