BMW X5 4.4L V8 Sport. 2004 series II upgrade
It developed an issue where randomly, the transmission failsafe mode would activate. I bought an entire low kilometer wreck with the same running gear rather than pay a ludicrous amount for any transmission work.
After the engine swap, the same problem appeared again so it was hours and hours of labour and lots of money wasted on replacing the engine and transmission for nothing. It never was an issue with the transmission, but most likely a simple sensor or ABS module.
Anyway, right now, it drives amazingly but I'm sure the same error would appear at random.
For the price, you get the car, plus the original engine, transmission and subframe with new struts, CVs, rotors and control arms, plus all the other spares you'll need for the rest of the car's life.
This is a 4.4L V8 SUV which handles amazingly and punches out 235kW.
I will upload images when I get a chance. If you are after an X5 then this is the perfect opportunityh to grab one that doesn't blow smoke or leak oil.
