It's nontrivial for sure. The indy I go to quoted about $2k for both, obviously less for a DIY mechanic. The way I see it I'm in no rush to sell (I store it at work, just need to keep the battery...

Found another E53 on Copart: '02 4.6is in Imola Red for $5k. Tow hook, weird thing on the hood, but mostly looks like it needs a wash and some maintenance.

Also an '06 4.8, 95k. From what I've read on other forums it could be spark plug related but that feels off to me. It doesn't happen all the time and there's consistent power delivery. MAF maybe? I'm...

I've noticed my 4.8 has developed a bit of a heartbeat. It's inconsistent, but there's a rhythmic, or slow pulsing vibration coming from the drivetrain. I can feel it in the steering wheel at stop...

I made the foolish decision to add up my expenses for the X5 today. I purchased the 4.8is in early August, so this is not quite five months of ownership. I am not counting insurance, gas,...
