Your car reminds me of this one:

2001 BMW X5 E53 Steptronic

Might be a few styling points for you to follow if this is the look you're going for.

Side exit exhausts on this 4.4 is an interesting move....

I actually like, I almost went with those tires too.

I'll be doing a Borla exhaust eventually, that I'll document in this thread.

Hope that E46 is not in too bad of shape
It's an e28 not an e34. But I did have a couple of e34s before. Love those too.

Let's just say the e46 gets well used by the wife.

Can't happen soon enough. The guys at Fluid are awesome too. They've responded to every inquire and question I have. Just waiting on the product to be finished.

Yes, it is a lot larger. I did check the calculator and it is a about 6%, I think, can't remember the exact number. But the X5 and these tires will be used off road, frequently. A sacrifice I was willing to make. I will most likely keep two sets of wheels. If I'm doing a long highway road trip, I'll have something closer to factory spec. I don't do a lot of highway driving now. Pretty much to the kids schools and back down to the sand.

Thanks! It's pretty damn clean and I have yet to get my hands on it with my detailing supplies. Once I do I'll post a few more pictures.

My 1988 535is, currently undergoing a euro bumper project.
My 1974 2002tii too big of a project for me to even think about.
My sons newly acquired 1991 318is 5sp.
The wife's 2000 323iT. This is a road tripping paddle carrying machine. She does outrigger canoe racing so it's full of salt water and sand!
This was our old 2004 Dodge Durango, which the X5 replaced. Pic was taken on the beach near our house and will be the X5s new play ground.

Nice X. Welcome!

Love the color.

My X came with those same sport pkg non-staggered wheels. I picked up a staggered set with summer tires and keep the OE around around with all-season tires. That look has me thinking bigger.

Been lurking on this forum for a few months now. I finally purchased a 2005 4.4 Sport with all the options I was hoping to find. It needed some maintenance items but lucky for me it also needed tires.

I live four blocks from beach access where I can actually drive, camp, bonfire or off road in the sand dunes (which I will not be doing). So I am taking a slightly different approach to my X5. I'm not going balls to the wall off road. But I did need some ground clearance for the sand and clearance for larger all terrain tires. The last thing I want, is to get stuck in the sand in an X5. My last family SUV was a Dodge Durango that was able to handle everything, never let me down and never let me stuck in snow or sand. I won't be tearing up the sand dunes in this thing but I will be hauling the family down to the beach for surfing and bonfires.

So here she is on 275/60/18 Yokohama Geolanders. 15mm ECS spacers up front and H&R 30mm in the rear.

I've already spoken to the guys at Fluid Motor Union and have been added to their list of interested people for their spacer lift kit. It's a few months out.

My other rides are:
1974 2002tii (Project)
1988 535is (Garage queen)
1991 318is (Son)
2000 323iT (Wife)

Thank you! I really like your setup! So did you get to do the lift? Mind sharing pics after the lift?

Yes, I wish! I looked around in my country but there does not seem to be any style 74s on sale. Bummer...

Thank you! I might as well think about other styles. I currently have the sport pack 19s and while they are nice, thinking about going to a more chunky beefy style.
