Only real "go fast" offerings I have currently for the 4.8 E53 is the SprintBoosters (found HERE) which eliminate the drive by wire lag and really "wake up" the X5.

Just to let everyone know that ESS Tuning will be coming out with a supercharger for the X5 4.8is in March of this year. The cost with be close to $10,000 for the for the higher output turbo , which will give you an output of about 480HP. They do have some superchargers for the other X5 models so give them a call if your interested.
