    BMW X5 3.0d Vs 1.8Ts

    Hey Guys

    Does anybody know the supposed Horse's running in the X5 3.0d as I left the stubborn driver standing 5 times continuosly on the A12 with power to spare. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif[/img]

    I have seen the more powerful petrol models fly and have never attempted to even chase them but must admit that ever since I've been running ultimax, the cars performance has been much more responsive. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/goofy.gif[/img]

    P.S. Mines just a standard 150bhp with mudflaps.

    Yep, I can agree with that as by the time it got fully going it had to start breaking again - by then it was all over the place.

    Probably better placed doing the kiddies run.

    Yea they are far too heavy, but you have to watch out for the 4.8i's, they are 360bhp 0-60 5.9!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img]

    Too right, but I saw the oval exhaust on the back of it and knew it could'nt be the top model - so I took my chances.

    Probably cool for cruising though. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
