New X5

Hey guys - Picked up a new X5 50 late december, but was waiting to post some pictures once I got the front windows tinted and installed black kidney grills. I also want to vinyl wrap the roof rails in black, but haven't had a chance to do that yet. I ordered the truck in late November and took delivery within 4 weeks which was nice. I decided to go a little crazy with the options because I missed some key options on my 5 series that I ended up regretting. Posted below are the specs along with some pictures. Looking forward to posting more on the forum.

God I love those wheels. They were a $6,000 option on the X5D....

Where did you pick up the kidney grills? I've seen plenty of websites that offer them but I don't know if one is better than the others...

Thanks guys. It's good to be back on the X5 forums.

I picked up the grills from the dealer for $180. My 5 series grills were aftermarket, but the grills never fit perfectly. I ended up replacing those with factory grills. This time for the X5 I just went straight to the dealer. The difference between aftermarket and factory is probably around $70 - $100.
