Updates to My X5



Hey guys,

Long time member here but haven't posted in quite a while. I just wanted to share some pics of some recent updates to my X5 with fellow Bimmer fans.

Mods:
-M style fender flares/wheel arches
-painted front reflector to match body (Black Sapphire Metallic)
-21" 310M wheels (21x11.5 R and 21x10 F)
-Pirelli P Zero RFT tires (staggered 325/30 R and 285/35 F)
-lowered on H&R sport springs (1.6" R and 1.5" F)
-tint front windows to match rear (as much as possible)

I've attached a before pic too...crazy how it doesn't even look like the same truck anymore, imo.

This thing handles unbelievably now (for an SUV errrr SAV lol).

Thanks to Charlie at Bimmersport for ordering and installing the lowering springs.

Honestly you're right, it doesn't look like the same X5. Nice transformation!

Thanks MIK3, I appreciate that. It finally looks the way I want so I'm pretty stoked, needless to say.

Thanks dbworld4k. I love the stance now. The wheel gap is just way too much when you run 21"+ rims, even though I do like the overall stock height of the truck. Still, I prefer it lowered, especially for the handling characteristics...it's night and day and handles like my e30 used to (well almost as well lol).

Thanks 1BADBMR, I got an incredible deal on the rims/tires I have ideas for more upgrades but I'm trying to save for a condo down payment as well so I'm practising restraint for now...we'll see how long I last lol.
