Taking it even further... the 4.8is is my ultimate will buy now that I am hooked on the e53 chassis. The 4.4i is great, but if 315hp is good... 350 is better. The 2006 4.8is is probably my favorite X5 variant of all those produced yet... excluding some of the M offerings.
You do realize it is likely that 3.0, 4.4 and 4.6 owners will have lots of valid rational why they think their model is the ultimate.

And you'd all be wrong. Oil burners rule!

Which is why I specified... MY ultimate e53...

I love my 4.4i, but will upgrade to a 4.8i now that I know I really enjoy the e53 platform. Would also LOVE to have a diesel... but we did not get those here.

Gotcha. Nuance of conversation can be missed pretty easily on forums.

Definitely some nice looking X's here. Looking forward to getting mine to where I want it. If only I could find the time to work on it...

The 4.8is conversion of my Diesel X5 is underway. It's the famous ebay kit from Latvia and, as you can see, the front bumper lip is a bit too long
