Just saw this. I've run those Contis on 4 different cars. Best tire you can get for the price. That said, I run Pirelli PZeros on my X3. Way stickier, but way, way, more expensive.

CarFax is putting its history based value on a Private Party sale at $9200. Obviously that’s stock. Mods don’t really add value, so consider them service items. I’d value it in the $10-11k area,...

Those are just locks. It’s fine to run without them. I never lock them in. Makes removal a pain in the ass.

Nothing you can do short of installing a simm. You illegally removed an emissions device. The JB4 no longer allows code removal for that.

Still nothing, 5 months later? You sir have way too much patience. I'd be at his door by now, or at least have had my lawyer contact him.

Anything that’s not used can be cut off. Though I don’t know if there are any unused connectors on the S55.

“wanted”. He didn’t get it. Manual in the US is a value killer. Even more so on a luxury car, more so on a luxury wagon. There’s no market for it, and no value. BMW dropped it for a reason. Nobody...

Not a whole lot. That salvage title and manual transmission kill the value. Maybe $4-5k if you're lucky.

You could use a rear O2 spacer. Generally that will keep the DME happy and it won’t throw a code. That’s what I did on my 335GT when it had to pass inspection.

It used to clear codes automatically, but when BMS went for 50 state legality they had to remove it. Not sure on the airbox. Perhaps the MAF is dirty?

Tuner codes are no longer auto cleared either in the US. Can't get CARB approval and 50 state legality if its clearing emissions codes.
