There is a manual X5 not too far from me, and I’m trying to convince my coworker to at least go look at it.

I should probably preface this with the fact that my coworker owns an E30 which he swapped an M52 in and dailys an ex-work truck, which I call the work truck:

The work truck next to my E92 and another coworkers 4 series.

It’s a 2005 Silverado with ~215k on it, and it won’t maintain speed on the highways when traversing hills. So what could be a good replacement? This X5.


At $3200, it’s not a terrible price for a pretty uncommon X5, it looks like it’s got some cosmetic issues, but other than that looks pretty clean.
