If you can't make it, mine can take the ugliest X5. I can only fix so much damage from previous owners. I can say, I will have the cleanest windage tray and oil pan! :D

Wow! Someone needs to make a conversion kit. Giving up Xdrive is worth it. So many options 4.8, 5.3, 6.0 and 6.2! Easy 325 HP to 500+! With slicks, will it do a wheelie?

How many miles are on it? Do you hear any clunk noises? Mounts, transfer case chain, bad carrier bearing, worn shaft guidos, or bad u-joint. Does it do it cold and hot?
