UnderRide Protection?

Does anyone know if Underride Protection the is compatabile with the US Aero kit?

Does anyone have photos of the Underride Protection with/without the aero kit on their X5? Please post and provide your opinions.

I'm seriously considering them. I have a 04 3 series and have ripped off the front bumper twice already cuz the front bumper gets caught on parking concrete stops. So annoying and VERY expensive to repair. I had to get a new bumper because the inner attachment is plastic and gets ripped off. (My 3 series is stock and not lowered any extra).

Then again, the X5 probably isn't that low. But it does look kinda nice.

This is from the cd configurator that a fellow member graciously did for us a few months back. Apparently it is possible if the configurator allows it.

Thanxs for the pic!

The combination of aero kit and underride (on white) isn't very good. I'll just go with the aero kit only. Unless I go with the spacegrey. That might blend a little better.

Real hard to decide between the two colors. Definitely want something that hides dirt/easy to clean.
