I'm Back

I havent been on this site much since getting a lot of great ideas for my E53 back in 2008 (i have a 2005 X5 that I get compliments on regularly). I just got a 2011 E70 50i and I'm hoping to make a few nice mods to enhance its appearance/performance. if anyone has any ideas i'm all ears!

that's a good shade of tint for that blue - is it 35%? Other than maybe spacers to give it an even more aggressive stance, maybe the LCI aero kit.

BMW Performance kidneys and painted reflectors will really clean up the look
both are great looking X5's
Spacers and perhaps a drop? if you want a more aggressive look

all fairly inexpensive mods that will make a big difference IMO

when you see them side by side, the older ones are the size of
an X3. The LCI X5 and F15 have a nice stance. Especially with
20"s

its actually platinum grey. i forgot to mention that i am going to swap the wheels from the 2005 x onto the 2011 after i have them powder coated black. i think the black aero kit might look nice with the black performance kidneys, the tinted windows and black rims. can you see it?

^ the hub bore of the E53 is 72.56mm isn't it? Would probably need an adapter to get those to fit on an E70 at 74.1mm now.

Personally I think a black aero kit would not look that much better given you already have the black trim on the bottom already.
