To ClassyJalopy. Early 4WD system is easier to maintain and works well in winter (trust me, I grew up in WI but live in the Alps). Don't limit yourself, consider pre-facelift cars.

So this is mostly bolt up BUT how you do control the xDrive solenoid on that transfer case with a pre-xDrive car?

conversion from 5 to 6 speed

How did you do this? Use 6 speed transmission and front / rear drive shafts but original transfer case (NV125)?

You select oils as I do (Redline), I endorse your selection. Mike Miller (tech guy for the BMW CCA) highly recommends MTL in BMW manuals (with one specific exception) rather than ATF. I've tried it...

Another good product is Novus plastic cleaner and polish (use #2). It's even certified by Cessna & Boeing to do the same on aircraft windows. Very reasonable and it works. I've saved many...

For a manual, per Mike Miller of the BMW CCA (aside M cars), Redline ATF is good but Redline MTL is better. I've tried both my 5 speed manual X5 (2002 3.0 diesel), I'd say the MTL is even better -...

Might be something to try but not on an X5 or X3. I have supplied an OEM shifter to UUC for the X5, it has a very specific bend at the bottom that this one wouldn't have. For an X3, it has a...

The CDV has an springed orifice inside which slows the flow, hence delaying clutch action.

Drilling alone will not get it all, and will leave cuttings inside. You need a special drift, a vice...

Your car is a 2001 X5 3.0 (gasoline), so it's probably got an NV125 transfer case (like my 2002 X5 3.0 diesel). Your driveline would be essentially the same capacities as mine.
