2003 X5 4.4i...coming up on the end of its lease...one month left



Here's the v8...



I've actually never really looked under the hood carefully...that brake booster is huge...



Anyway...right side of the engine...Coolant...Fluids on the right...completely different than the 3er...



Air box on the left...



The biggest concern will be the 4x4...the ETK says the step and manual trannies for the X5 connect directly to the diverter thingy...



So it looks like either you would have to modify the SMGII tranny which is near impossible because its longer...or you would just have to go with only rear wheel drive which is just retarded on an X5...=( End of story I guess...
