Nice pickup, Pete. You moving the bull bar and ski rack over, or is the prior model sold?
If you haven't already, consider the CDV delete and short shift kit mods. Much recommended!

^^^pete, nice find! I like the deep blue (Deep Sea Blue?), a 6th cog is always appreciated.

After you do the free CDV delete, my next biggest bang for buck mod was the thickened, leather/perf leather, thumbrest added Sport Steering wheel.

You can try to find an E39 M5 or E46 M3 wheel, you'd need a new airbag. Or the E53 facelift sport wheel is gorgeous as well. But let me tell you what a difference that made in the driving experience! Enjoy the X and I'm sure you'll learn that us guys with a 3rd pedal don't really miss those 2 other cylinders much at all!

cdv is already in the garbage, the light bar doesn't fit the x5 and there really isn't one I like for it, so I might skip it this time, I had 2 sets of cross bars for the x3 and both fronts fit so i threw them on...

That looks nice. I also recommend the ssk.

And the E30 is sweet. I wish I had bought a M3 when prices where low.
