Hi all, its been quite some time, just over 10 years since I was here on these forums with my E39 M5. As of two weeks ago I am now the proud owner of a new X5M and like all cars I've owned before this, I am on the quest for more power.
Yesterday I installed a Racechip ultimate module which has made a subtle improvement in power however I'm looking to go for more HP without breaking transmissions.
Does anyone know of an Aussie tuner that has experience in this area ? as I'm not willing to let anybody experiment on this car.
I will say this that BMW really missed the mark with the exhaust note on this car and stock sounds bloody awful ! and I'll have to invest in a system that at least mkaes it obvious that there's a V8 under the hood and not a 4 cylinder as it sounds like now which I'm guessing is largely due to the twin scroll turbos.

Based on what I have found I would be looking to install the following

  • Akrapovic Exhaust System
  • Hi Flow Catpipes ? recommendations please
  • Tune ? recommendations please
  • Upgraded Turbos ~ Pure Turbo's maybe ?
