crystalworks is on a distinguished road
Done one X3 and one E61 wagon with the N52. It wasn't fun. If you have good motor mounts it will be a pain in the butt. If you have shot motor mounts that have collapsed... you'll want to burn the X3 to the ground. Total time for a decent wrench should be about 4 or 5 hours including coolant bleeding (nice to have electric pump).

The X3 I did actually had sheared motor mount bolts and engine had fallen on subframe destroying the pump. Fun stuff.
