Also, to point out the obvious, the X5 never had the N54 so the 6 was the N52 with the 6 speed to '11 when it switched to the N55 with the 8 speed.

They were in Canada - a friend has them on an early '08 V8. I had to take them on my 50i because they were packaged with other items I wanted. I'm still not entirely sure what the appeal is.
