Great looking truck. I wanted white, but was vetoed by the wife.
I'd say keep the lips as they are, it looks good.
Maybe tint your tail lamps, and replace the front reflectors on the bumper?

jaa, how much difference do you notice with the Dinan exhaust and S2 mod in the 535?

UncleJ: I acquired the car with those mods (it's a lease - due up in October [the X5d is purchased]). But I can tell you that I did have a 335xi (same engine) and there is definitely a difference in power. The 5er is a BEAST, and she sounds like one with that amazing exhaust. Peak HP is at 395, and TQ at 424 I'm trying to convince my wife to let us buy the car when the lease is up if BMW gives us a good deal.

Thanks, it sounds like a real runner! You are lucky to be away from the clutches of the dreaded CARB who will not allow us to have those mods, well maybe the exhaust, but not the chips!

Mein Auto: huh?

White's not my first choice for a car color but your ride looks really sharp with the black wheels. I wouldn't paint the lips, either. Congrats on the new X5d.
