ML's suspension is too soft, not much a fan of it. X5 is more quiet on the road too. Also got the 3rd row seats for my big family, so I like that a lot.

Thanks Hehe, thinking on the Aero Kits + Vorsteiner lip and maybe some wheels later on. Spent too much on the M

Nice X5.

Also why would people paint reflectors in anything BUT body color? The point is to hide them not prononciate them more. I saw another white X5 with black reflectors, was like WFT? Good thing OP is going with more sensible choice.

Maybe it wasn't black, maybe he tinted them?
Also, there is another option, clear reflectors. If you want to keep the compliance and safety but avoid ambers, you can go with clears. Therefore body color is not the only way to go.
