It seems like most/all BMWs are this well balanced, I guess that is part of what makes them drive so well!
I'm not sure what the front to rear torque split is exactly, but it's intended to give the X5 a rear wheel drive feel. You guys are essentially right on the weight distribution, BMW always strives to be near 50/50. The X5 (based on the latest brochure) is 48.1/51.9 (F/R) 3.0 Auto, 48.6/51.4 3.0 Manual and 49.7/50.3 4.4 Auto. Emission basically had it right.
