Cool Hi from a new Oz member (image heavy)

Hi, Nathaniel here

So glad to be a member of this community and be able to give and take and share..

i recently got my first x5 a 2001 4.4 V8 and have been cough "tastefully" cough modifying it ever since.. life is too short to live stock

lights first

then tyres wheels and a wrap

i then added stickers, a custom rear bar with tyre carrier and rated snatch points, a paramotor mount, and a custom front bar with winch

oh and the plates of course

oh and a lift kit as well

Aaaaand then reverse stopped working in it.. so its grounded until i work out what to do next.. parts for these are significantly harder to find an expensive than in Euro or US..

I've been considering the same taillights. Not normally into the "smoked/clear" look but always liked these. Any issues/feedback on them?
