Swapped the black grilles that were on my X5 when I bought it for some Titanium and Chrome ones. I prefer these.

lok good. I'm often thinking about putting some gloss black ones on my black X5... but then I like keeping it stock as well.

I've been contemplating just the opposite on my silver 2005 4.4- replace/color the grills and the door handles with all black . Might do the wheels too (style 87). Here's the look I'm seeking.

Both look great. Iím in a black trim phase myself for my X5. I was configuring a 45e X5 on the BMW site recently (daydreaming, also built an M2 in British racing green) and would definitely go with the Msport package that has the body color trim for a change.

As an aside, it seems to me that BMW has gotten stingier with the number of paint colors they are offering on cars. Perhaps they are trying to drive folks to the BMW Individual site for a $4k special paint color. Although itís nothing in comparison to the zillion permutations of colors and options, all a la carte, Porsche offers.

Hmm.. I quite like the look of the black wheels and door handles. Mine is Titan silver too but my wheels are gunmetal grey so not far off that look. I may have them refurbished at some point so we will see..

Fixed the right rear pic problem early on Friday morning. By the afternoon, the same side front tire alarmed for low pressure.
Since it was cold and air was added to all four tires, now the ride it a little stiff. Once it warms up, tire pressure will be dropped a bit.
