a word of advice ?

I own a 540i which has a 4.4 liter, and I have an x5 3.0, which as far as maintenance is way cheaper than a 4.4, yes the 3.0 is down on power, but research the 4.4 compared to 3.0, and you will find that the 4.4 has a lot more issues, valley pan gasket, valve covers, and I've had vanos failure on my previous 2002 540i, don't get me wrong I love the power of the BMW v8, but unless you plan on doing your own work I would go for the 3.0.
