3.0 Vs 4.4

hello people - quick simple easy question. Is it just me or does the 4.4 looks more muscular than the 3.0? is there really a difference in size as far as width, breadth, height? Please advise as i am getting the 2006 model.

I don't believe much has changed other than engine displacement and other supportive needs etc. With Beefier tires/rims, I could make my 3.0i look just as decent. But for the gas milage... I'll stick with my 3.0i. ; )

On the contrary , there's like a mile difference in mpg Btwn the 3.0 and 4.4. You are better off with having more power from the same amount of fuel. The 3.0 has to work abit harder to shift .

It's just you, OP. They look the same to me.
Just by looking at it, is my E53 below a 3.0 or 4.4?

The 3.0 gives 21.9mpg and the 4.4 gives 20.3mpg so for the difference in power , you are better off with the bigger engine.
