E70 tuning

Hey guys, I have a 2009 X5 xdrive30i. I wanna start some lightweight tuning, but I don't know where to start. I don't know where to look or what to look for when it comes to parts for BMW. I've tried Dinan, but they don't have a real selection for my model. Any suggestions?

I just don't see a whole lot to be gained from tuning that engine. Or at least nothing that is cost effective. You're better off driving and enjoying and saving the money for a "turbo era" X5.

Hate to say it, but you're driving the X5 which is the soccer mom BMW. M3 would have a plethora of choices. The X5 is great SUV, but performance upgrades? Not enough demand so what would be the point for tuners to develop the parts??
