New Mods on my 4.4

Hi all - believe this is actually the first time posting on the boards. Always great information! For a little background, my truck was bought by my brother from a member, "LightWerkz". I bought the truck from my brother when he bought a 700hp 2011 x5m which is a whole different story.

I've had the truck for about a year now so figured I would make a thread to post all of the mods I've done - and plan to do.

2006 x5 4.4
Alpine White with Black sport interior

Mod List:
  • Super Sprint Mufflers
  • Custom Intake
  • OEM 4.6 kit (soon)
  • Cross-drilled Rotors
  • 03 Projector Fogs and HIDS
  • LED Smoked Taillights and LED reverse lights
  • Complete LED interior lights
  • 3m Di-noc Carbon wrapped interior trim and console
  • M-Sport steering wheel (carbon wrapped)
  • Alcantara shift boot and ebrake handle with M stitching
  • OEM aux cable connection
  • Black Grilles..may go back to stock Titanium
Future Mods:
  • BC Racing Coilovers
  • OEM 20" Rims (Style 87)
I recently bought a new oem 4.6 kit for $1400 (ouch) on eBay and dropped it off at paint this week. Should be installing it this weekend.
Rear installed:


I also just finished wrapping all of my interior trim with the 3m carbon fiber wrap. Took some time but I love it!




Taken last winter:


Will post up some pictures later tonight

Technically its the X3 M Tech wheel, thicker than original sport wheel. Pedals are Ultimate pedals.

Both I were on the car when I bought it, I just wrapped the steering wheel trim in carbon wrap.
