Nice wheel choice. It's hard to find aftermarket wheels that still have a clean OEM style to them. :thumbup:

But what I don't understand is, making a non //M car look like an //M or install a //M badge on a X5 to let people beleive it is a //M is wrong, but making a 3.0 or 4.4 look like a 'is' is ok? :dunno:

Let's face it, it's pretty much the only mods that you can do to the 3.0/4.4's to make the exterior better (bumper wise)... same for the wheels - besides the 87s & 168s there's barely any other wheels that actually look good on E53s. I'd rather see an OEM+ modded BMW over a tacky modded BMW with ghetto wheels any day.

BMW allows it...although we do not accept putting an M badge on a E53 x5(2000-2006) due to e53's Never had an M car :stickpoke so I'm guessing thats why....:dunno::dunno:

I'm pretty sure they didn't keep the body style the same so people could retrofit their cars haha. It's most likely due to keeping everything simple & consistent with compatible parts throughout a couple of years... for repairs/maintenance. It's simply smarter to design 1 same part for 6 different vehicles/models instead of designing 6 different parts for 6 different vehicles/models.

The worst are those ugly M grills.
Heck on my old e36 M3 I actually removed the badges
for a cleaner look.

The worst is the ///M roundel lol

OK, I'll join in.

The X5 is nearly stock and will stay that way - He's an 06 6 speed stick with only 34K miles (family hauling & client meeting vehicle). His name is Rolf.

The M3 has hardly any stock parts left - she's all modded, fast, nasty and so much fun you can't stop grinning the whole time you're in her ;) Her name is Gretchen.

I think Rolf told me he wants some Style 87's for his birthday :)

You're gonna need to refurb those 168's, and stay away from those nasty curbs. I'm in the same boat!

Thanks all.

I bought it curbed like that on both fronts. Waiting for snow to start and I'll put on my winter 18"s. Then I can get these fixed.
