Baddest X5M

Old posts on what the vehicle looked like before.

http://www.xbimmers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=649035

Now the new pics and an update on one of the baddest X5M's, I would say in the world.

New wheels, new suspention.
New engine mods, he took the exhaust manifolds from a 2013 M5 as they are different, and modified them to fit the X5M.
They fit the top of the motor, but did not fit the turbo's. Im not exactely sure why, but I will find out more info on all the mods.

I will also get better pics.

Im not sure if they are rotiforms wheels. I looked at the pictures on there web site and they look similar. I will find out.
As far as the suspention it is an air suspention. I need to check to see who did it.

Not Rotiforms.......

They are Avant Garde wheels, Design F140 or F240 Forged Wheels.

The wheels are Avant Garde wheel.
I got to talk to him today, He said the M5 exhaust manifold fits its bolts up to the top of the motor, but the turbos would not fit right I donít think the even bolt upright,
So there was some fabrication that had to be done, he made it seem like it was a lot of work to make it work.
He did say the mid range torque is unreal it hits 70MPH to 100MPH in a snap.

sorry but not only is the design horrendous on the X5, the fitment of the wheels is horrible.

The air suspension is pretty nice, but how does it affect the handling?

Lol, it's not for everybody. Most people think it looks good.
I rode in it and I have to say its like stock, just lower.
You would have to see it in person.
It's not that low when it's driving.

The stance is perfect! And the wheels look sick. I even like the clear glass, even tho mine is dark.

Wheel fitment is horrible in what way? Care to elaborate?

Just because it's not your taste doesn't mean it is a horrible fit. The customer wanted something aggressive and got it. Granted I think he could have gone a almost an inch wide more for the front. To each his own.
