more work will have to be done if I put an M5 motor into my car, I rather put the 4.6is motor, it's also cheaper to mod than an M5 motor

I actually think it's easier to fit a V12 then the V8, because the V8 is wider, the cylinders are at a 90 degree angle to each other and the V12 is 60, or something along those lines.

The only thing that is keeping me from having a V12 in my E30 is the wiring...i just hate electrical!!! the rest i can do...but what good is it if it just sits there and doesnt run!!!

i dunno but i THINK a M5 would be cheaper to mod since theres ACTUAL mods made for the car!
Might just be me, but i've never heard of any performance parts for a X5, except the obvious, intake exhaust, lil kids stuff like that!

That E30 with the V12............which 7er is that from, E38 V12, or older?!
