What kind and size of wheels are those - those are some of the most fantastic wheels I have seen on an X5 - period!

How do you like the suspension changes?

Thx,

The film is pretty forgiving and can be removed and re-installed several times as long as you don't let it dry (for an hour) first.

They have a couple of really good install videos on their web page.

Is that gunsmoke or something even lighter? Mine is gunsmoke and seems comparatively darker.


As for difficulty, I did it in my garage while it was 60F so it wasnt' ideal. Even with a hair dryer I had a hard time stretching it around the corners. I'd rate it at least a 3-4 difficulty but again, it wasn't ideal temps.

Mine is the lightest color (Tint) that they offer....

HRE 940RL 22x10 front and 22x12 rear

I haven't had a chance to set the suspension up, it is still too high in the rear and all of the rebound and dampening settings are at factory 0

I will report back once I set things up
