For your ambitious price to find the right buyer, the truck should be perfect and have no needs—I.e. Replace the cracked trim pieces, do the paint correction, and refinish the wheels. There is not much you can do about the drivers seat wear, so don’t dwell on it. Same with the spots in the nav screen. Just let it speak for itself or consider replacing the head unit with a Dynavin or Eonon unit for a few $$$.

You don't mention anything about winter driving, but for NE car, that will be a consideration for someone looking for perfection. Did the X5 originate in a western or southern state? If so, highlight that. If not, then you need to talk about “limited winter duty” or other language that tells buyers it has not spent a lot of time slogging through salt-laden roads. (Unless of course it has spent some time in salt and has the underside to prove it, then knock at least $4-5k off your “perfection“ asking price.)

You might have to spend a couple thousand to make it perfect, but that is your best chance to get full asking price. For an enthusiast who is not afraid to do this work him/herself, their DIY labor is what will attract them to this X5. Assuming no underside rust issues, I would think that $15k would be an attractive price for the truck as-is.

My $.02....Good Luck!
I appreciate all of the advice very useful and will definitely use going forward! Will be updating with undercarriage pictures shortly! Truck has seen snow/salt etc, impossible not to in my neck of the woods. Although all things considered it does not reflect wear from the environment!

I'll add a couple things to get closer to your asking. Buy a new set of OE floor mats. Unless you have them, they are missing in the pictures. Replace the nav screen. Take close up pictures of the curb rash. And as requested get some under carriage pictures. In addition to the tow package it's missing the running boards.

There was a ~45,000 mile one that recently sold on BaT for $27000 I think it was? Highest I've seen for sure. It also had a few flaws and was not perfect. Just an FYI to give you some hope of getting $20k for yours. Good luck.
Also good advice! The BaT car had 39k miles and sold for just over $28k (after adding buyers commissions).

While not quite up to the standard of a mild climate car, those undercarriage pics do look remarkably clean for a Northeastern car. Must have been garaged and washed weekly in the winter months to stay in that condition.

Hope you get close to what you want for it, and hope that you will report back here to let’s all know how you fare!

I was an interested party and spent more than half an hour on the phone with this seller last week. It was a pleasure to speak with him and he has a strong willingness to help prospective buyers with vehicle questions and work with them on price.

I planned to inspect the vehicle in person next week but I worked out a suitable price for a different 4.6is/4.8is that I've been chasing.

Best of luck to this seller and I encourage any prospective buyer to see any vehicle in person. Or, at the very least, reach out by text to the seller who is responsive.
