New X5 owner. My 2011 35D

hello, i traded out 328 on a x5 last month. very happy with the change so far. with the harsh winter weather this year and a 18month old baby, this car definitely makes more sense for us. this is my third BMW. the first purchase being my summer car, a Z4M coupe. i have made a few modification to the x5 so far including
-dtec v7 angel eyes
-eibach lowering springs
-painted sidemarkers
-black mesh grilles
-colormatch/gloss black kidney grilles
-LED foglights
-mtec led plate units
-12.5mm and 20mm ecs spacers
-roof rack delete
-oem aerokit (spring installation)
-275/315 toyo gi5 winter tires on stock 20 214's
-22" bmw performance wheels with 295/335 pirelli

when i first got it and installed the angel eyes

test fitting the new summer wheels before the eibach suspension

Looks great, love the pics with all the snow ,we dont see much snow here unless I drive about 800 kms South. Coldest it gets here in winter is about 5 deg C. then we may get a frost or two over the whole winter.We dont have to worry about two sets of wheels ,one set all year round does us !!!

Did you pick up more negative camber with the Eibachs or is there a camber adjustment to get back closer to stock? I have had cars that I lowered and the inside edges of the tires take a beating due to the extra negative camber.

Looks great. What kind of gas mileage are you getting. I have a 09 X5 4.8 and I'm looking to get a diesel. I hear the low end torque is incredible.
