ZHP shift knob indeed - throwback to our previous car - a 2004 330 winter sport performance M package. no other mods except a bluetooth streamer hooked under cupholder to cdchanger bus - i have been a blisfull extended warranty white glove service type for a while there - why muck with perfection? black on silver was our second pick - black on black was first and previous car to the two (a 2001 328xi) but silver on black worked out really well. not too hot for socal climate.

love the silver ext with the 19's. but in hot climates black is not always the best interior IMO.
i ended up hating the 19" M sport wheel tire package - had to change them during almost every oil change and sometimes more often - they blew at rate of one per year at cool $500/pop and sometimes two at the time - I make good money just not a $2000 oil change money or $1000 a tire blowout money. different tire size plus rear wheels negative camber plus ferrari quality tires do make for a good ride just a very expensive one. what did rockfeller say - if you have to ask how much for a boat maintenance, then the boat ownership aint for you? then the whole bmw stance on voiding xdrive warranties unless you match tire thread depth, thread pattern, and manufacturer for all four - well thats for the birds - the xdrive has faulty design/manufacturing that chews through tires and disintegrates every two oil changes or so - nothing to do with tire thread pattern or depth, or manufacturer... so yeah i like the looks but made for ferrari owner pockets. i expected a german stouch fiscal conservative design and got flaming temperamental italian version of it

I have the 18" Mtech wheels (forget style #) and really want those 19's posted earlier. I've never had a problem with staggered 19's or 20's on my bimmers... Won't get 60,000 miles out of a set of tires, but I regularly got 30,000.

Yes, 2 X5's. I have the rear camber zero'd out though during alignments (or as close to 0 as they will go) to minimize uneven inside shoulder wear.

correct wheel alignment helps. may parent had a staggered wheel x5 and they got 20 to 25 k on the tires.
