The extra weight of the 4.4 on the X5 was obvious in comparison to the 3.0. I'm sure on a E39 5 series the extra weight would be even more pronounced. The extra heft of the V8 will manifest itself as a car with more understeer & less inclined to change direction easily on tight turns.

Depends on what's more important to you. Handling or power.
