Just be prepared to be disliked by a lot of people once you do get them lol. I found a whole thread based on mine saying I ruined my X3 on Bimmerforums.com. Not sure how I ruined it bc it handles 10 time better. Its not a racecar so why not? To each their own I take hate with a smile

I have to agree. I never knock folks for stuff like this. I did my share of customizing back in the day and my sons did it too.

Just took the wife and our X3 on our honeymoon in the Adirondacks. 124K miles on her (X3, not wife) and we definitely put the X3 through the works. Contemplated tackling the muddy spot in the middle picture, but not with the summer tires

Nice car and a beautiful area. I'm amazed at all the places they use Bailey Bridges.

Looks good Would look a lot better with matching HIDs. Might want to look into block off plates for the oem fogs. Think you could actually pull this off
