just found this thread- any updates to report? I think the E53s look mean with some beefier all terrain tires on the stock 17"... I wouldn't do any technical trailing with one, but with a slight lift and A/T tires, I'd def take it to a favorite MTB trailhead or bouldering spot.. This isn't mine, but I'm all about this build...

Me and my boyfriend split and I had to move so I ended up trading my E53 and my 128i in for a 135is :-/ sorry to let you all down.

sorry to hear this and sorry to hear the build thread is no more!

135is though is a nice replacement I must say, hell of a car.

I would like to continue the conversation

Hi all,
Im a new member here and would like to say hello. I have been testing and modifying my E53 for "actual" off road use. I would like to give my first hand opinion on how I feel this is a feasible vehicle to do this with. Obviously there are more capable platforms to start with. This would be too easy in my opinion. I have experimented heavily and have had some set backs.

Short of swapping an X5 body onto a GM or Jeep frame (not even a BMW then), turning an X5 into a TRUE rock crawler would be a monumental undertaking.

This thread is similar to the thousands of "I'm modding my Civic to run 6s in the 1/4 mile" posts on the internet.
