2011 X6 Hybrid Custom Paint, ADV1 wheels, and KMAC Bushings

At GMP Performance, we believe all cars deserve a little bit of performance love and that includes hybrids. So when the owner of this X6 Hybrid came in wanting to add a little pizzazz, we readily embraced it. He wanted custom painted calipers (specifically in green ) and some new wheels to really show off the caliper color. Some ADV.1 ADV5 wheels were chosen and we must admit, they really do the job of adding that special touch to the car and showing off the little touch of green.



Parts Installed:
ADV5 wheels
K-MAC Bushings
Custom Caliper Paint

The Before




Add some awesome ADV.1s




And after




For now, it's good to go. But the customer has definitely been bitten by the aftermarket bug and is already brainstorming the next step to take with this X6. We will keep you up to date on what is shaping up to be an amazing build in future!

Be sure to comment below and let us know what do you guys think!

It looks awesome!
Do you have more information about the front and rear bumper lips?
Do you have photos from the direct rear side?

Thanks!

These body pieces were provided to us by our customer.. who purchased them from a company that, from what I can tell, no longer exists. Sorry!

We are doing some more for this car in the upcoming weeks so we will add some more pictures then!

Looking forward to see more pictures. That's one very unique X6!

It's a shame that we can no longer find those body pieces. They look good!

love the wheels and the car color. But for some reason all together it looks kinda tacky to me...maybe its the caliper color throwing it off???

Color looks nice and shows beautiful lines of the X6. Not sure on the caliper color though.

The caliper color is certainly unique.. it matches the customer's vision of "going green" with a Hybrid

BMW Hybrid Wheels

Hey...do you know if the owner would be willing to sell the original X6 Style 297 Wheels ? If so, I may be interested in purchasing them :-)

The grills were painted to match the "Active Hybrid" logo, which is a common color throughout the Hybrid models.

Not a bad effort, but the back end is looking awfully bulky.
