Mine same year as you but less mileage. But Micheal has noticed some slow oil leaks and dried coolant marks around the thermostat. I think my car will be changing exactly the same parts as you. I changed compressor and condenser last month for $1100. Now super cold again. To me, it's worth the maintenance la. C5 is a nice car.

Well, it's an BMW engine so I will try to avoid any BMW engine in the future...

Not sure what will the car surprise me next. But after ratifying all the above issues, the car is a enjoy to drive again. So quiet and smooth.
