You've added additional LEDs to the air inlets. What brand? Any pics of the install?

Thanks

Comparison

Right now the 750 will cost me my trade in plus the cost to CPO. It's pretty much a wash.

Used 012 750xi or new 013 535xi

I recently traded my 012 750xi in on a 013 X5M. Love the X5M but miss the 750. Wife wants something larger than the 011 E90 328xi that she uses when she's not driving her X6. She wants something...

Already took them off. Vibration completely gone and the truck rides better. The Racemax spacers fit well, the hubs we're nice and tight. May try again with a different brand.

Wheel spacers slight vibration.

I installed some Racemax wheel spacers from BMP on my X5M. 12mm front and 16mm on the rear. I have to admit that the look is awesome. Perfect!

Style 214 Wheels on M

I'm probably old school since I'm not a fan of the whole monochrome look. Just picked up a new Space Grey X5M with style 300 wheels. None of the M wheels are particulary attractive in my opinion....

I'm hoping that the new Pilot Sport A/S3 comes in sizes to fit the X5M but it could be wishful thinking. Right now I've only identified Continental DWS and Nitto Motivo as direct replacements for...

That's interesting, I had a Cayenne Turbo, last generation. It was fast but it had no soul. No real exhaust note and it rattled over railroad tracks with 21 inch wheels. I wasn't impressed at all.
