Keep the wheels, they look fine and makes the car stand out from the gazillion "standard" looking cars.

Nice exhaust tips too - those are not standard.

You can do that on our trucks?

Here's a shot of the boat on a skidpad during a teen driving school. All understeer at 30 MPH.

Disconnect the brake fluid level sensor and have fun! I wouldn't have tried that in the dry, though.

What were your impressions of the driving school, and the X5's capabilities? What speeds did you hit? Notice any brake fade feeling in the pedal or oil aeration sounds from the head? Very cool that you got to throw it around some cones!

The X5 drove like what it is, a truck. The I6 only could bring it around 40MPH with the limited space, so the brakes were fine since the speed was so slow. I'm sure bigger rims, such as lightweight 19" ones, would help reduce the numbness of driving. The final autocross course made the body roll and numb steering really pronounced.

As some may know, it is a blizzard around the NYC/NNJ area. My first time driving in the snow, and I got some snaps of the aftermath. Really do want to get some snows after realizing how bad the OEM Michelins feel.
