** SOLD -> For Sale: X5 E53 4.8iS - going in for PX £3k
« on: August 07, 2018, 09:54:39 PM »
Hi all,

After 9 years of ownership I've decided to part exchanged my 4.8iS for £3k. It's going on this Friday 10th August but in case anyone is interested and can offer better than £3k, feel free to get in touch. See one of my older for sale post for pictures - http://xdrivers.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,13917.msg136852.html#msg136852.

Based in Stourbridge, West Midlands and viewing is only possible afterwork I'm afraid.

Here are some details:

54 reg 2004 - RK54CWT
Full Service History,
Last serviced on 8-Feb-2018 about 3000 miles ago.
Brand new Michelin tyres at the front
Almost brand new Toyo tyres at the rear
Gearbox oil/filter changed at 117k
Mileage currently stands at 119200
MOT until March 2019
Still under BMW insured warranty

Despite looking after it very well during 9 years of my ownership, there are some issues to note:
1. White smoke at sometimes, could be early signs of dreaded stem valve seals but a similar symptom was cured a few year ago by changing the diaphragms.
2. Scratches on both sides as well on boot tailgate, not fixable simply polishing/buffing
3. Someone viewing the car noticed wet edges of one of the under trays

I haven't had a chance to get 1 & 3 checked over.

It's mind vs heart game, my friend!
I decided to sell my 4.8iS a few times over the last few years until I drove it the next time and changed my mind for another few months/year :)

I lost almost all of the purchase money on this car and spent another few £k on maintenance over the last 9 yrs but absolutely no regrets.  :))
