Here's mine!

My first X5; Silver 4.4i with "is" wheels and chin spoiler. I sold it a couple of years ago and had regrets... so I bought this 4.6is! Since I have already had the "is" experience in terms of appearance, I am considering changing this one up a bit; Aero kit and different 20" BMW OEM wheels (still wanting to maintain a factory appearance).

The last photo is not my car; but its the look I am thinking of going for (except in black).

Feel free to chime in!

Thanks to you too...I know the blacked-out lighting was in back in the 90s but I actually still dont mind them if they're not totally black...

They ebay LED tails tinted with light-tint 3M by a friend of mine. Yes the light stuff will look good on black for sure...

Yah, we like black cars.

If you do all the washing yourself, you must spend your entire free time washing cars. I have two black cars and am washing two to three times a week. Takes me almost two hours to complete each car to my specs. Great selection of machines though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:thumbu p:

Thanks for the advice. I never did my own washing as Im afraid to ruin my paint . I go to a car wash near my home and they do pretty good job, except when my wife brings her car, she doesn't check the dried water.
Thanks.
