Congrats! I just wanted to point out like others have about your flares... But if you don't like it. Don't even worry about it.

I'm patiently waiting for my Alpine White Premium as well. I purchased a set of the same wheels and had them powder coated gray since I don't like black.

I agree with Sonblitz, I am also not a fan of fender flares. I think they look OK in the back, but they take away from the front tires. The back tires only stick out 0.5 inch or so from the body, in reference to a vertical plane. I think fender flares do nothing to help keep the lower back panels free of dirt and grime kicked up by the tires, due to the camber of the rear tires.

You are right... The X5 wait was nothing compared to my two previous ordered cars from Germany

oyster is visually great, but even with my saddle brown it is showing dirt. I can't imagine oyster to be any better.

Too bad you don't have the fender extensions, I would have traded with you for the non-flared...
I just placed an order for them here if anyone is interested in ordering it.
