Cool To answer your question

We don't have the air-springs on all four corners like the 4.8 did (not sure if a separately available option), so I'm not sure how that plays out on yours. My guess is that the front air-springs (not to mention the adjustable ride height) could change the front-to-rear balance a lot, particularly in transitions (versus steady-state cornering).
To answer your question, I have an '05 E53 4.4i and it is fully loaded including four wheel air springs, xenon cornering headlights, nav etc., equipped exactly the same as a 4.8is but just with the smaller V8.
