Hello all,

Thank you for having me I wanted to just introduce myself. I work for Ross' Rods & Kustoms and we are in the process of doing an 01 X5 for a customer and thought you guys might like to see the progress. It's kinda a unique build and we are pretty stoked about it. There are some before pictures and some in progress shots.
I happened to find you guys when I saw a black X5 with the same body kit as this one pass me on the highway, I about broke my neck looking at the way the bumper was painted. Then I saw the liscense plate frame and here I am. ( She probably thought I was some homicidal manic, oh well)

Welcome to the forum. :)

Reserving opinion until build is done.

Criticism is appreciated, negative or positive. The pictures do portray it as a bit more ricey then the build should actually end up. We have taken a set of 7 series rockers and fit them to the body kit, loosing the rocker steps. We also made a set of newer 3 series mirrors fit the doors. Overall it should retain a very BMW look, while loosing alot of the utilitarian features that are neccessary on any production vehicle. With the roof rack gone and the vehicle lowered two inches, it has a very interesting stance in person.

door handle delete? Hmm odd choice

Ross' Rods & Kustoms 07-30-2010 10:16 AM

The shave of the handles was done to accentuate the body lines, its amazing how good those lines look when you loose the handles that break them up. Definitely not the easiest door handle shave we have ever done due to the bmw latch mechanism, but very much worth the end result.
