50i is a 400hp/450lb tq (twin turbo) and goes 0-60 in 5.3 seconds
If your planning to mod, go with the 48i or 50i... BUt your better off doing a comparison between the 35i X5 and the 50i 5 series... not the 48i... Just my opinion...
Here is my point, where you are comparing how much horse power each car has, i am not comparing that, All i need is a V8, Almost new either X5 or 5 series.
I am trying to figure out which one is a better overall, i am not planning on drag racing either one of them, even thought that may happen, If i wanted a race car, i would go for an M3, i need a grown up car, that would be good for the family and friends to go anywhere across US and at the same time have fun on the backroads and dessert highways and if i ever have to to tow my old 5 series out of trouble ( God forbid) for around $50k. I do have a great Bimmer 5 series e39 manual that 's a pure fun, .
By the way thanks for the power comparison, i never put them that way.
Thank you for your opinion, this is exactly why i created this thread, to hear your opinion!!!
