Same boat for me but I went and bit the bullet 2 yrs ago and grabbed some 22" Vossens now this summer it's time to replace them.. Almost cheaper to hit Craigslist and keep buying tire/rim packages.. Got my Vossens with new tire for 1300, that's cheaper then buying 4 new tires these days

Had wheels replaced under warranty about 11 months ago, BMW dealer charged 360.00 for one rear tyre, approx €560.00 dollars for one run flat

333s on non-m sport body looks great

Little teaser of a couple mods installed in the last few days. Waiting on the rear aero parts to be re-sprayed and the rain to clear up.



Lip and X6 LCI grill installed. Pic shows only one kidney in for comparison. Really like how aggressive and updated it looks compared to stock/performance. They only come in chrome trim so have to be sanded down/painted. For anyone interested - part #'s 51137305589/51137305590



Also installed supersprint 120mm (4.7") tips. Luckily for us diesel guys these are a direct bolt-up to the stock muffler and fit great. Better pics coming soon.

Looks great. What do you mean that the tips are direct bolt on? I thought with all tips, they need to be riveted on or welded on? How did you take the stock ones off?

Thanks. Sorry for not being more clear - you cut the current tips/rear section off, leaving a couple inches of pipe on each side of the muffler. The new tips already have the appropriate pipe section welded on just tighten the clamps to the end of the cut pipes. They also make the new hangers needed.

New to us 2013 X5 35i.... cleaned today for the photo op. Don't look too close, there are cosmetic flaws (chips, rubs,one rim kissed a curb). Still, in pretty good nick. 45k miles. I'm not much on upgrades, but, did put OEM rubberized floor mats on board. So far, (1 mth) no operational issues. It will need a re-spray and sealant at some point... but I imagine I'll have to sell a kidney to fund that .... Apologies...smartphone camera. CPO from local BMW dealership.

Ace...

Not sure why the original owner would have chromed the Style 334 rims ?

I see 2 distinct advantages to those rims....

1) I don't have to look at them while I'm driving.
2) When I'm in the mood to get my Pimp Daddy on (for rollin' the whip
down the boulevard) I'm set.

(well, as much of a Pimp Daddy as I can be as an old, fat, bald, white dude driving a white SAV.)

sure do wish he had done spinners.
