Hey guys, I'm new to this site and new to the x5. Thought I'd share some pictures of my truck. Let me know what you guys think !

*Also if anyone can do some cool photoshop editing to the photos it would be greatly appreciated !


Cheers,

I think that looks fantastic, going for the same options except that I want the performance black grills and 214 rims.

Looks great!

jealous, everytime I see a white LCI I'm jealous... nicely done with the aero / performance pkg, though I like the style 336s better than these. How much did they charge for the aero kit? Is the steering wheel done too? I think the wheel flares would help a lot too.

Thanks ! I'm thinking about the black grills as well, I've got them on my black e90 LCI.

Haha thanks I love the Alpine white. The aero/performance pkq makes the truck look way more aggressive IMO. I bought the truck cash as is from the show room so I didn't really look into what each thing cost seperately but when I get a chance to look at the papers I'll let you know !

Oh, you had bought it already modded from the dealer? I think that its odd that they put 21" wheels on it, but didn't put on the flares. A 'user' after-the-fact I can understand, but that's a glaring error for a dealer.

I think that you should get the flares and see if you can get someone to paint them for you (not all shops will paint the black plastic, but I've seen more than one instance of people having that done on this, and other boards). That would look awesome.

"Glaring error"?!?! Hardly, dealers look for the biggest flash for the lowest cost- find a sucker walking by that doesn't know what it "should" look like.
