Post subject: 02 X5 4.4l Build

I had been driving my Mercedes ML as daily and really loved it, I was not appreciative of the car that much when I had the M3 because I always wanted to drive the sports car. The ML was super comfortable, really smooth, quick and one of the best stock all time 4 wheel drive / off road / snow vehicles I have ever driven. Not to mention it got 18 miles to the gallon beating the crap out of it

With where the economy was at, I was not looking for another car but I had stopped to see my friends over at Elite Motor Group. They had just taken in a 2002 4.4l X5 as one of the trades towards a Gallardo and it was in pristine condition, 70k miles, perfect service history and bone stock.

I left, and spent about a week googling. By the end of the week I had already started ordering parts for the car I did not even own yet Smile I was like a kid in a candy store. I had locked my self in by way of tuner overload.

I went to pick up the car and was so excited. My newer gas friendly ML really could not even compare to the X5 by way of performance and handling. It was so much nicer of a car, all around. I could not imagine what it would be like when I was done with my mods.

Well I went mod crazy, and made up for what I saved on the car in aftermarket parts.
