Custom tune from Cobb Tuning in Plano, on the dyno. The OTS maps are okay, but the tunes are superb. Worth the drive to Plano.

Had an F15 as a loaner. The seats are a bit more supple, the steering is painfully light. The car drives like a smaller car than the E70 which is pretty commendable. But overall, it felt like I...

Like I said, none of the shocks were leaking and they all appeared to be in good shape. No doubt they don't function as well as they did new, however I've driven low-mileage E70s and the difference...

Yup, in E70 application, they recommend against upgraded springs. I did look at the Bilstein B12 setup which had an Eibach/Bilstein combo, but again, my goal isn't to try and turn the X5 into a...

The N55 in the X5 uses a MAF. It can't take a BOV. Its diverter valve is built into the turbo.

The N54 in my 135i got a BOV upgrade, since it uses a MAP sensor.

I doubt this would improve actual dyno numbers like a downpipe would. It's more of a reliability mod.

Don't know..it just wasn't there. That being said, it's plenty secure and not going anywhere. It's nice that E70s have a charge pipe that works. :)
