Looks awesome. Well done. I wouldnt change anything. Regarding the plates i am sure he transferred registration. I did the same. I wouldnt let anyone put those plates on my ride, they are an eye sore and a half.

Looks great, but keeping those calipers white is going to be a killer ordeal! You'd better go ahead and order some no/low dusting pads asap...my red calipers show enough, I can only imagine white.

I love the dual piston calipers on there as well...it's on my mods to do list on my E53 X5 using 750iL calipers and hangers.

Did I miss something? His calipers look stock. I still laugh at the X5M front caliper. This HUGE rotor and HUGE caliper with this little ittybitty pad. I havn't pushed the brakes really hard yet but fairly certain they will melt with a couple of really hard track stops.

Nope! OVER "BLACKOUT!" lets face it.... a car need to return its reflective ability... its not just to praise our buddy and shower him with Wows! Safety comes first! No reflective component of the beast was spared!

On the other hand, the car is beastly great... I like the backside.... pipes... but I just dont like ALL BLACK theory!....

His calipers are stock, but at least BMW stepped up and put dual pistons in the front. I know my X5 is grossly overweight compared to my 740il, but I'm surprised that the X didn't come standard with dual pistons, so I'll be upgrading it myself using 750iL parts. Sorry to get off topic.
