I almost has to be in the 3.5 range. I could get 3.97 in a G05 X5 50i M-Sport.

.4 seconds isn't something to sneeze at. Especially since the X5M will continue to pull harder to top speed.

That's really quick. Random question how's your timing with the tune?

I'm not sure I follow. Are you taking about timing advance in the tune vs boost? I don't have any data logs of advance, but max target boost is 22psi. The tune is an Active Autowerke tune. I've been running it over 2 years without any issues. Runs high 11's in quarter mile at track.

I was referring to ignition timing. But that's great to hear. I'm sure it'll last you a lifetime. Those engines are solid when they're taken care of.

Considering it's for 523hp that's not shocking. In fact adding 18% power and taking off 0.4 seconds is pretty good.

But yeah most people will look at that and say the M50i is stupid fast already.

I mean when it's 4.0 vs 4.7 (20%)that's a big difference but when they start getting to 3.6 vs 4.0 (10%) it's not as big of a deal anymore especially when it cost $25,000 to do that.

My neighbor just for one X5MC and it looks awesome will have to race vs my X3MC (but stop at 100 &#128514

One thing is for sure he doesn't have the bad turbo lag the X3M has.

Good video and yet another example why X5M is a nearly perfect conversion of design, space, practicality, price and performance. Nice job, BMW.

Love this car. Since the G80 peaks aren't inspiring confidence, I look forward to killer lease deals on this bad boy after the initial demand fades. Either this or the M5 considering BMW fudged the designs on the smaller cars minus the M2.

C & D timed the X3M to 60 in 3.3 will be interesting what they get out of the X5M, quick car the X5M but not worth the premium over the X3M as it's not 45,000 better.

A Jeep trackhawk would be faster and cheaper than both. The X5M offers a unique overall experience combining ultimate luxury with performance. The interior alone is worlds better.
