FS: 2006 E53 X5 - Stratus Gray on Silver M-Alcantara 3.0 6MT

Hey Everyone!

I'm posting my Stratus Gray 3.0 6MT 2006 E53 X5 for sale. After a while of E53 ownership, I've decided that I want to move on to something else. That being said, the car is in great shape since it's been in my care. I've also done some mods to the X5 that are listed in the mod list below.

Prior to my ownership, the previous owner replaced the transfer case with a brand new unit from BMW (replaced at 110,000 miles). This was done to troubleshoot a vibration issue with the vehicle, which later turned out to be the inner CV joints on the front axles. The front axles were replaced by me after coming to this conclusion, and the vibration subsided. Oil changes have been done methodically with BMW 5W-30 every 5-6k miles. When I acquisitioned it in March 2016 with 111,000 miles, the following maintenance items were done:

-Transfer case replaced
-Rear differential main seal replaced
-Front brake calipers replaced
-New front and rear Brembo slotted rotors
-Every suspension bushing on the car replaced with Powerflex Polyurethane
-Transmission fluid replaced
-Front and rear differential fluid replaced
-Shifter linkage refreshed (ECS Tuning E53 shifter refresh kit)
-Both front axles replaced
-Dead pixels on gauge cluster and radio display repaired

MOD LIST:

EXTERIOR:
-BMW OEM Style 300 E70 X5M Wheels
-4.8is front and rear bumper conversion
-4.8is rear fender flares
-Aluminum running boards
-New OEM inner tail light housings (replaced due to hazing of stock housings)
-E70 X5 rear wiper arm retrofit
-15% rear tint

INTERIOR:
-4.8is Silver Perforated Alcantara full interior
-Full Black Headliner conversion
-Rear footwell light retrofit (came pre-wired)
-Front heated seat retrofit
-E83 X3 M-Sport Steering Wheel (Purchased re-wrapped from ledermanz on ebay)
-OEM E46 ZHP shift knob
-BMW Performance pedal retrofit
-BMW OEM Weathertech floor liners (front and rear)
-Wood trim wrapped with 3M vinyl
-Silver gauge cluster rings
-Red gauge cluster needles

PERFORMANCE:
-KW V3 Coilover suspension
-Eibach rear sway bar
-Brembo Stainless steel brake lines
-Brembo front and rear slotted rotors
-AFE Cold Air Intake
-Eisenmann Race Exhaust System (Installed at 119,000 miles)

As a note, at point of sale, the car will come with the BMW 4.6is oval tip exhaust system installed. If you would like the Eisenmann exhaust on the vehicle, there will be a $700 price difference.

The car will come with an extra set of wheels. They are the OEM 17" wheels that have snow tires on them. The tires have ~5,000 miles on them and were only used last winter.

Current mileage: 130,848

ASKING price: $SOLD!

I realize that the asking price is in line / maybe more expensive than some 4.8is examples out there. That being said, the M54 is a motor that can run for a very long time if cared for properly, and the manual gearbox is a lot of fun to drive (especially with the tire and suspension combo on the car). The maintenance up to this point has been spot on. I think that this is a pretty unique example of the car, especially with all of the work that has been done to it, but as such the price is OBO.

Car has been detailed and paint corrected professionally by me, and is currently showing a paint depth of between 112-117 nano meters on average from panel to panel (factory paint thickness was between 117-122 nano meters)

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!

Thanks for looking!
