FS: 2006 X5 4.8is Awesome DD

I am making room for a new air-cooled family member :rockon: so unfortunately this awesome X5 is going up for sale.

I bought this car earlier this year from a more anally retentive owner than myself. He owned it since ~59k miles and kept very good detailed maintenance records as shown below.

I chose this car knowing it needed nothing and it will be passed on to the next owner the same way.

The car is on fully adjustable BC coilovers that were recently rebuilt. The height can be adjusted and if one would really desire it could be converted back to air suspension (I no longer have the stock components). The computer still says that the self-level suspension is inactive. I bought the software to program this out but have yet to pursue that so I will pass it along to the new owner.

For an SUV, this thing handles extremely well. It currently is set pretty stiff but that can easily be adjusted.

Heated Sport Seats, Panoramic Roof, Rear Shades, Touch Screen Navigation, Bluetooth Music, Bluetooth Phone, Fold in Mirrors

Key Maintenance Items:
•Thrust arm bushings
•Oil Change
•Spark Plugs
•Hood Shock
•Cabin, Air, Fuel, oil filter
•Rear Lower ball Joints
•Wiper Blades (front and rear)

•Front & Rear Differential Fluid
•Transfer Case Fluid
•Transmission Service with filter, mechatronic sleeve, and adapter

•PS system flush and new fluid
•Engine Mounts
•Coolant Temperature Sensor
•Replaced both axles with brand new GKN units
• Oil Change

•Bought new rear DWS’s and warrantied fronts under road hazard. New tires.

•Passenger Door Latch and Cable

•Replaced Transfer case motor
•Replaced Transfer case fluid
•Replaced Alternator (brand new Valeo)
•Performed Coolant flush
•Replaced oil pressure sensor (Genuine)
•Replaced Heater Valve (Genuine)
•Replaced Vacuum Pump
•Replaced CCV’s (I do this every 10k because they are cheap and its precautionary)

•Full Synthetic oil change

Waiting on PO to send me maintenance items from 82k till my ownership (I misplaced them) but I know he rebuilt the coilovers, rebuilt the sun roof track, delete headlight spray nozzles and sprayed the bumper to clean up rock chips.

Oil Change

I am asking $10.5k at this point without much room and I truly believe this is one of the best e53's on the market right now.

i remember this X5. i was bidding on it awhile back. i think i was one bid away from owning it. i guess i was bidding against you. (small world) i got cold feet in the last minute. i still regret not pulling the trigger in it. wish i would have waited a little longer. i just bought a 2003 4.6is same color with sport interior. GLWS!!

Great truck. I daily the same thing, a 2006. Got super lucky after months of searching I foind one that was about to be listed FS - precious owner traded like 5 cars into s dealer Bc he was moving, and he dumped about $12k into preventative maintenance right before I bought it. No issues, drives like a dream...that raw bmw feeling. Not the electronic steering bs etc. sorry for ranting! How's my dude!!
