Nevertheless...keep up the good work. We don't make strides in performance by doing what everyone else would do. Car looks good. Only thing I'd consider at this point would be to upgrade the valve body in the transmission for more consistent shifts. Not sure what the torque capacity is of the 7 series trans....I have yet to mod mine. Doubt I ever will since she is getting close to 100k miles. I'm just going to do stereo, drop, rims, and done.
Please PLEASE post up some pics of those monsters you've built

What all did you have to do for the X3 to get those gains? It originally had the same engine as the 335i right?
