Lowered the x5 M

Little trip to IND today =) 2" drop up front with H&R springs. Took us a little while to dial in the back, but finally got it right for now. Also had my grill trim painted gloss black. Ilia and Nate were kind enough to put up a 20" HRE p40 so I could get an idea of what it would look like. 22" probably the way to go.

Enjoy the crappy iphone pics (forgot the memory card for my camera LOL). Better pics this weekend after a wash.

Gloss black grill trim


HUGE rotors and calipers


Regulator for exhaust valve


Warning: Spacers will NOT for the rear wheels


Links now come with the H&R spring kits (longer stock link on R)


Little too low in the back here!

Let me just say: you are the MAN! That looks fantastic! So low and so mean. I have a fetish in my mind of a low and mean x5m.

The HREs could certainly finish off my fetish... Please feel free to acquire them as soon as you can. Thank you!!!!! How is the ride by the way?

Looks great. Wheels will really set it off even more. What was that you mentioned about spacers in the pic above? yay or nay? I say yay. They make a huge difference.

Thx guys for all the comments. The p40 is a stunning wheel, p40L in 22" will be available this summer, hopefully. Anyways, I really like the lower stance of the car now. Ride is surprisingly good, I almost cannot notice any difference from stock, maybe over a large bump I can, but overall very acceptable.

For some reason we were having a hard time seating the rear wheel on to the hub of the spacer. It just didn't fit! Doesn't make sense, I'm gonna probably take another look this weekend.

Looks like Carbon...

Trips, how much for the 20 inch P40l's? I am thinking either 20 or 21 inch P40L's, or 215 Ferric Grey...
