Thank you sir! defiantly looking forward to install the hood (hopefully this should be done in a next couple of weeks) as or right now the truck is not unique as there are handful of E70 in the same color with the same mods, don't get me wrong they are all beautiful but I haven't seen this hood on any other X5Ms on this forum just some on other forums in Europe and it looks good.

After the hood is installed my plans are:
F85 rotors (when it's time to change mine)
LED head lights retrofit
F85 head unit retrofit
Velos 2 tune

just to give you an idea on how the hood suppose to look like...

I am getting a MCB X5M next week and I like looking at yours to get some mod inspiration. it looks gorgeous.

Could you tell me where you got the grille with the M colours and carbon fibre exterior pieces from?

Thanks

Thanks man, congrats on mcb u'll love it!

The grills came with the car but u can pick them up pretty much everywhere, mine are glossy black, the M pieces I got from eBay, they not stripes they plastic pieces that just slide on top, also there are plenty of options there, including new type of grills from f15/f85 u can get and they should fit!

I got cf lip and diffuser from eBay as well, If I remember correctly I got lip, diffuser and Akrapovich tips from the same place and got decent discount, that was back in December. I'm actually thinking to replace lip with M performance lip but not totally sure yet, there are no replicas I could find but original cost about 1600 and its more than I paid for all 3 pieces mentioned above!

Let me know if you have any other questions, I still have plenty to do as well!

Thanks for the comment, it helps.

How do you like those plastic cover things? I saw them on eBay but wasn't sure if it's something that'll have any longevity and if it looks decent in person?

I saw the doubt sill ones on eBay for around $200. I guess I might go with one of those in gloss black.

For the lips/diffuser the cheapest I can see on eBay are around $750 Canadian plus shipping and that's quite expensive. But since it's a big vehicle I guess even the no name brand ones are that expensive. When I had my C63 I was able to get the front lip for under $400.

I don't think I will go the route of lowering it and all that though. Perhaps a different set of rims. I will need one for winter anyway so maybe I will get a nice in black and use that for summer and swap the tires from the current rims to that and install the winter tires on the OEM rims. Guess will think about it.

Love this colour though ever sine I saw it first. Looking forward to it.

Anytime, this is pretty much only place where u can find answers so we should def keep helping each other!

I like the covers, I wasn't sure myself when I ordered them but was pleasantly surprised when received them, they actually clip on so they won't come off easily, 6 month plus many car washes, they still there with no signs of wear!

Yes, u pay premium price for premium car, parts etc., nothing is cheap even replicas, but if you look patiently enough you can find something for decent price. Also some people just thinking that it's wrong to have anything replica on this cars, I have no problem with replicas as long as quality is decent.

The lowering is totally up to you, most of the people who mod they cars think that it's one of the major parts and I'm in the same boat. I got lucky in a way that when I bought mine it's already had KW v3, so it's saved me $3500 but I would probably do H&R lowering springs as I used them on my 11, X5 and liked them alot.

My winter set is actually 310M replicas with Toyo Proxes STII, I got them as a set right after I got my car, payed around $2k for a set, no complains!

Just to let you know how everything is expensive...
$4000 - $7000 Extended warranty
$3500 - $4k - LED retrofit (yes I'm not lucky as my came without)
$1000 - $1200 - F85 brakes + pads
$2000 - Velos Stage 2 tuner (could be little cheaper if u'll get a discount, price includes personal tuner, not sure if u planning to tune u car)
$3500 - $4500 - CIC to NBT retrofit
and more...

I looked online on eBay and the shipping price being charged by the vendors is ridiculous. Like $800 for the shipping alone and then around the same price for the part. I think I might just have to wait and be on a look out for these things if they become available on here.

I am curious about how the diffuser gets installed though. Does the coloured part of the bumper get removed and then the diffuser fits or does it go over the bumper as is or something?

I agree prices are generally pretty high, shipping is very expensive, the size of the box(s) is ridiculous not to mention international shipping, unless you can find something where shipping is included in the price or buy multiple items so its kinda make sense at the end!

As far as diffuser goes, it goes on top (over the middle part of the bumper) it holds in place by double sided tape, pretty simple install but you need to make sure that you prep both sides well!

Thank you!
KW v.3 Coilover kit includes everything, not sure if it's also includes links or not, just check any vendor that sells it (ECS Tuning for example), you'll see all the included components. I bought my car with KW installed so I'm not as knowledgeable about contests of the kit as others who actually bought it!
