Weren’t the engine liners an issue for that vintage BMW v8? Or no?

Issues were with M60s and early M52s in the mid 90s. The high sulfur content in low quality gas in some parts of the US (and a few other markets) ate the Nikasil liners.

I usually don’t have any interest in these but this one seems to have the right “look”. The right wheels, color, stance etc....

Not that I needed another reason to procrastinate about selling my car, it seems to be what I do best, maybe I should wait one more year.

This late December articale I just found from hagerty seems to think so.

Damn.... It's my car...
Almost anyway.
This one is a 2005 S, mine is a 2006 'regular' Carrera.
Wheels are different too - but, overall - real close.

Pretty car if I do say so myself.

FYI - The current bid price is already well over what I paid for mine.
This one has 81k, mine had 85k as I recall (when I got it a few years back).
Just shows BaT is the place to sell a car if you are able.

2005 Carrera S

I still wont sell there. Some guys are on there JUST to pick your car apart and never bid. They are that bored.
