    Dear all X3 gurus

    I'm in the process of purchasing a X3 here in Thailand. It would be imported from the UK though. The xDrive35d has a quite stiff price over the xDrive30d due to taxes.

    My question is about the engine in those two cars. Is it the same 3 liter engine just with a different tuning, or is the engines different as well? If the engines are the same I guess I could tune up the xDrive30d to the same performance as the xDrive35d after I get it?

    Thanks in advance for any info!

    Yes, two turbos but the base engine is roughly similar.

    You can tune the x30d to very near x35d power, but certain risks come along with that.
