Also haven't seen a hood protector on an x5 before, don't have them in the UK.

Have you considered silver vents up front and on hood, would match the side steps really well.

Also European headlights would get rid of the dated orange turning lights you guys got in the US.
I have considered silver vents, kind of pricey though. I might just paint them over the summer.

The black kidney grills and vents came with the X, all original. Have you tried ebay?

The hood makes it look agressive as well as being very practical and preventing chipping on your bonnet.
The wheels I am not feeling it and maybe it would look better with something more oem style(87s are favorites) but each one to their own and what matters is that you think they look nice on the car and they probably do look much better "live".
The orange corner headlights,they look great and may not be worth the extra expense of getting clear corner ones!I say this because you car has clear side markers and clear tails,which for me are what makes the more dated,not the front ones as they are nicely designed orange corners,unlike the pre-facelift X5s.
Good luck with the car.

Thanks, much appreciated. I previously had OEM 18's and after a while I was just tired of looking at them. I am very happy with the new rims and tires, gives the X an aggressive look, but like you said to each his own. I don't think i am going to change the orange side markers, to be honest i dont notice them much.

These are some "ARCS" 5 watt LEDs from eBay. No problems with the radio signal.

Be easy on me; I'm not a photographer.

02 X5 4.4i and what's left of the huge snow drift that had us confined to the house for a day. This is at the in-law's house after two blizzards went through in two days last week in northwest MN.



A couple months ago:


My other cars are an 05 330i ZHP with 41k miles and 90 RX-7 with 48k original miles:





Just sold these last month in an attempt to downsize. Owning 5 cars was just too much.
