Anyone have a X5 with SMG?
 
Anyone ever heard of a X5 with SMG? I feel thats the only thing that's really lacking on the 4.4 and 4.8?

I've never heard of it....you'd better get working on that.

McLaren F1 motor in a X5 with a SMG gear box would be cool :lmao:

LOL I bet thats his next project. Drop a V12 Le Mans motor in while you are at it.

:idea: next project!

do the 545i's come with SMG? I figure that would the closest smg tranny that might fit...SMG is a pain in the ass...it's integrated with DSC, engine, yada yada...I really like X5's they are solid...v8's have a different kind of push on the low end...=)

nm...just looked at bmwusa...550i's have 6 speed smg option...time to find a crashed 550i...

Be sure to make another thread chronicling your progress for us. :)

You are nuts and I love it! :thumbup:

simsima325 11-20-2005 10:32 PM

you could retro an M3 SMG wheel in the meantime, hook it up to your Step ;)

MITE46 11-20-2005 10:56 PM

Actually I already did that on 02-15-2003...=)

But I want the real deal...=)

Jeuprx-8 11-20-2005 11:01 PM

Why not just do a 6-speed zf manual tranny in a v8 x5?

NorthJersey 3er 11-20-2005 11:05 PM

Just realized you can still use the steering wheel. Sorry about that. :)

03 Dinan 3 11-21-2005 09:43 AM

no SMG...but I've heard of SSG...

You pay $300 for the kit and you can install SMG-like paddles on your steering wheel (paddles like in the 330i, not M3)
