I wonder if he was referring to the space grey or the white M
Probably the grey
Everyone knows space grey is the sexiest color
Whites not to shabby either
Thanks
Lol

Clearly the space gray because the M badge on the front of the white one is nearly as ridonkulous as me putting diesel badges on my x5d.

Different strokes for different folks I guess. On Titanium Silver, I get nothing but compliments.

Very nice, any color it looks good on...especially lighter colors though.

I wanna

Loving these, I swapped to black grills on my Carbon Black 535. We have an X5d coming in next week, alpine on cinnamon, and this is the first mod I want to do, but it is the wife's car, so not sure it will be allowed

I may sell her on the fact that with the SAV package, the rest of the chrome is bye bye anyway. Love it on the X5M (and the others), now I know how good it will look on a white X5...

Haha, nice! Sounds like a perfect way to sell it! Just go on about how that random chrome would look tacky, ghetto, yatta, yatta, yatta...lol
