X5D Exhaust - Aftermarket/Custom options?

With all you X5d owners out there, does anyone know of an exhaust kit for it? Or has anyone gone to a shop and had a custom system made?

Any input is appreciated!

Thanks!

Black grilles are the only way to go on the darker ext colored X5's. The matte black ones I installed on my DSB look WAY better than the stockers.
