I am picking up my 08 X5 4.8 this week so am very excited but also am a bit worried that the new 4.4 twin turbo V8 from the X6 will replace the current 4.8 V8 in the X5 very soon before the end of the year. What is everyones opinion would BMW make such a drastic change to the X5's engine since the E70 is only in the 2nd year of its production cycle?

i think that the twin turbo v8 is going to debut on the 4.8is, which means that the current 4.8i is here to stay (it may get a little horsepower boost for the facelift).

Why worry? Be happy with the awesome vehicle. If I were worried about something bigger and better everytime i bought a new car I would never buy one. There will always be something new, but not always better.
