I never knew this. Funny thing...... after reading this thread, I went out to check my cars. My X5, only a month old, from the factory came with the yellow dot NOT aligned with the valve stem. My 911, only a week newer, DOES have the yellow dot aligned with the valve stem.

Why would BMW not know this if indeed it is fact?

Reviving an old thread, but MUCH deserved as that ride looks great! Job well done! Wanted to know how the ride quality is with the coilovers and 22" wheel setup? Would you put the coilovers on it if you had the choice again?

Thanks bud!

Hey thanks for the compliments! Love the ride quality, especially since I was concerned about it being much worse. So with that said, I def would opt for the coilover setup if and when I do it again. Thanks again

Bumping it up, I love it I think you have the nicest non-M E70. Do you have the auto rear leveling? I am wondering if KW has a kit for the auto rear leveling trucks I have yet to find one specific for them.

Looks great!

Ever figure out the issue with all the weights on that one wheel? Something is wrong there...there's no excuse for a wheel/tire to take that much weight (it is on the inside and outside of the rim).

Hi MELLO, Looks really good on the X5. How is the ride quality ( in terms of noise and vibration) after the upgrade with 22" when compared to 20"?

Wow, that looks great.

Don't think they would survive my local roads.

They come in 20" and 21" too if you want a little thicker sidewall. The wheels are very strong and light however in any size you choose Let me know if you need a quote.

Thanks!
