Wow... thank you all for the compliment. I didn't expect the response was thAt good as I really didn't do a whole lot to the car.

x555a- same here, I never like black wheels until I saw mine.. haha

richirich- The bug is definitely highly contagious, and I definitely got infected thru the X3/5World ;-)

weasel56- Thanks. I was going to ask you what's the best way to tint my fog lights? The tinted film that I wanted to buy had been discontinued I converted the fog to HID with the 6k bulbs to match the low beam, but I might switch to 4k or below as they do see better during foggy days, which happens a lot here.

dsm2925- ha.. actually it does look like from the back that it can pull a tree! I'll post some pics looking from the back shortly.

RMak- Wow.. "the best"! Thanks man. There are really quite a few awesome looking X5 here and hard to say which one is better or worse, they are all different or "personalized" ;-)

cavx5- these are just oem calipers painted red! I also was unsure if red or black, but I chose red at the end just to make it "subtly LOUD" :-p

That is one mean looking son-of-a-biatch! Everytime I see black 87s I think ... why do I have LeMans Blue!

I was going to suggest the black paint on the side creases (where it goes thorugh the handles) since you blacked out your handles. However, since you didn't paint the handles all black them that might not be such a good idea.

Edit: How about smoked side markers? Also, how about adding evo "vortex" fins to the hatch spolier. I was going to add it on mine originally but went with the ACS replica. I kinda regret it as I think the vortex fins would have been nicer. I played with adding it on with the ACS but then it would be a bit busy. I still want to do something and have plans but gonna be too busy to be doing mods soon.


Great job and wish I could see it in person!

Essam - Go for it man! I can send you the list of what I've done so far. But that would mean you need to undo what the color coded trims?!

sleepless - I wish!!! IF ONLY my car is not required for the inspection on YEARLY basis

TwinsPoppa- Hey poppa, Lemans Blue looks great man. I can't see your rims too clearly from your signature, but how about paint them black with a thin lemans blue border??? The style of your rims look suitable.
