Pearl Bliss * Delivered & Debadged *

This car actually replaced "Pearl Bliss", my Maxima. It's been a very long journey as the car was actually ordered in Feb. The new build cycle, CARB issues and the disgusting seat module campaign all made this delivery less than it could be.

Nonetheless, the X5 visually surprised me in a couple of areas.
The Cinn Brown leather is probably 3 shades darker that I had anticipated after seeing saddle brown. It's not a negative, just a different look. Leather feels great too.
The AW looks great and will look even better once I get some tint on that biotch!
Style 335 rims impressed even more in person. The 19's didn't come out too small and they look more aggressive in person. I do like the looks of the 336's, but the cost of 315 rear tires, added weight and them only coming with summer tires turned me off.
Top View and all the electronics are cool. Glad I got all those toys!
The lack of LED and refreshed headlights the rest of the world gets is a final downer.
Will be de-badging, tinting and clear bra'ing post haste.

Very nice looking X5. You have a nice garage there.

My dealership has a rack containing an example of every leather trim they offer, BMW Individual or not. It helps comparing leathers like Cinnamon Brown and Saddle Brown.

Thanks. It's filled out nicely now.

Cinn Brown replaced Saddle Brown for MY2011.

Congrats ! Very nice color combo. Are the 335's staggered ? If so what are the tire sizes ? Are the fenders flared or flat ?

Fenders should be flat for 19's...

Epacy awesome ride, you're making me re-think my sparkling graphite - I love AW but all the black trim made me want to get a dark color X to hide it... what to do.

335's are staggered. I believe they are 255/285.
The fenders are flares from the body, but do not have the black extensions that stick straight out.

AW with black trim and tint is what I was going for!

Nice pics! Just ordered the same color combo for the wife. She's really sweating the interior color. I think it looks great.

Best color combo available and I really like the new 19" wheels. They look even better in person.

She's a Beaut!

Very nice Ep, I like the interior choice. Very clean debadged. Did you also remove the motor designation badging along the sides?

Note to BMW: Why oh why did you decide that this was a good idea?...It's so tacky. I think the Z4 suffers the most from it.

PS. Any plans to mod besides the tint? I believe the software available for your motor transforms it into a torque-filled monster, No?

Yes, debadged everything. Motor designation was gay.

No big mods planned yet. Just going to get some painted reflectors, somewhere-haven't found a place yet, and maybe some new interior lights. 'Chip might happen down the road.
M3 is eating up the mod money at the moment.

It was great to see cinnamon in an actual photo! It looks VERY nice! I saw saddle for the first time this weekend in person......the two-tone interior really looks sharp! Wow!! "Sporty".

Love what you have done! The rims are very eye catching!

Great work!
