Nope...could be a 4.6is with the BMW aero package..it could also be a 3.0/4.4 with the 4.6 wheels and aero kit too.

dunno....could be a modded 4.6 or 4.4 for all i know

but definately not a 3.0

4.8 has the facelift headlights.
They are crawling all over the place already... every time a new car comes out, its amazing the people that go and buy one so quickly and have them on the road so fast.
I've seen 3 different ones already, 1 black, 1 imola and one estroil

I sure like it !

Might have been aftermarket wheels and tires. All 4.6is and 4.8is come with 20" wheels

i doubt it's a 3.0 based on gut feeling plus...the front looks slightly more aggressive..i dunno what it is but 3.0s don't look exactly the same as the 8cylinder x5s...if u lined em up same colour combos and shiat..i bet i could tell them apart :cool:

other then that...the hood style is a little different(grille and overall styling)

besides that, not much proof...but i know i'm right.

that is NOT a 3.0 :D

oh yeah, not in the pic but the stock exhausts differ from 3.0 and the 8 cylinders.

3.0s have that very 'bland/boring' exhaust that just slopes down while the 8 cylinders have a 'sportier' exhaust that has polished tips.

To be honest, I think it is a 3.0. Most 4.4's come w/ running boards. Also it the exhaust on a 3.0 only has single tipe, whereas the 4.4 has dual pipes on each side, it has notihng to do w/ the tips being polished, you can just purchase the polished tips @ the dealer anytime.

4.6is/4.8is come with single oval tip also ;)
