It takes the “large feel” (weight) of the X out of the clutch engagement from a dead stop. And it does really help on inclines, even when not towing.

I can grab the clutch at 1000 rpm’s easily, and get’er to 4 grand quick! Not bad for a vehicle that weighs over 2 ton. I’ve always felt, that the manual E53’s are geared perfectly.

Yes. The X5 requires a little bit of an adjustment to your shift cadence, but the reward is far better performance off the line than we have a right to expect from so little power pulling so much weight. It's tough to make that adjustment in a quick drive (and made worse by the low rev limit in 1st).
