Talking Which engine do you have in your X5??

Participate in my poll. Tell me what size engine you have in your X. I think the 3.5 will be the most popular followed by the 3.5 diesel. Let me know if you have a tune on your engine. I have the 5.0 with stage 2 Dinan. 501 horses, at least thats what Dinan told me.

The diesel engine size is 3.0 , even though the nomenclature is 3.5 D . In order for me to vote the correct engine size has to be shown.

I thought about that. My engine is actually a 4.4 but for the sake of not confusing people, I went with the badge that comes on the side of truck.

So what's the deal with the 4.4 and the 5.0? Wouldn't it have been easier to just use the model numbers:

30i
35i
48i
50i
30d
35d
40d
M50d
X5M

Yeah.... I thought that is what i was doing. In 2006 the X5 came with 4.4 liter engine. Thats why 4.4 is in there. I was hoping people would go by what was on the side of their truck. 5.0 Xdrive was on the of my truck. So I just used 5.0.

I believe this is the only E70 in the world with 5.0 badge on the side of the car... as I wrote, the nomenclature is 50i
