Wow- here in SoCal, most of the X5s (incl. the 4.4s) are wasted on Soccer Moms who can't get out of their own way.

Agreed,4.4 and 4.6 are no contest...I thought the Lexus RX was the soccer mom queen?

In the last year and a half, I've never had an X5 that seemed willing to try. Plenty of folks in cars that had no chance, obviously not knowing what they were dealing with, and only a few SUVs, but none worth mentioning. My most interesting kills have probably been a Lexus IS, and Saab turbo. :?

Cayennes are the best (not turbos of course). They think they have a fast Porsche. Then I just take off and leave 'em in the dust. The best part is the looks you get at the next stop light :twisted: .

Thanks a lot everyone. Now I wish I had spent the extra bucks for a 45. Maybe I can convince my wife to upgrade next year.

I will tell her the ashtray is full and we need to trade. Means I have to take up smoking, but it might be worth it.

upgrades are already under your foot.....start moddin', for less than a grand you'll quicken the pace , and for 6 grand you can "BLOW" a 45 outtadawater!

Wanna Bet...only if it is stock!and even then I am not sure...let's see 1/4 mile times...0-60 are basically irrelevant.(a car that launches well,geared well or is light will 0-60 better than the 1/4 where power shows...I use the comparison to decide whether to take someone on launch or off a roll).. races are won on distance covered!

Tuesday,I go to get the Paddock CAI.Twice this week I have talked with Random Tech and Performance Nissan about the hi flow cats.
In lieu of a blower or ECU, this was my shopping list and I am completing it!
I will get a Cay Turbo yet!
