Mein Auto: GT 550Xi
My 550xi modded

Hi everyone!
Got my GT 550Xi half a year ago after selling my 760i.
Made some mods for exterior:
- Hamann fromt spoiler
- Hamann side skirts
- Hamann rear spoiler
- Hamann trunk spoiler
- Breyton Race GTR Matt Black 22" wheels. 9 front with ET 15 and 255/30 ZR22, 10 rear with ET30 and 295/25 ZR22 Falken FK-452 tires.







- BadlanzHPE cutouts with wireless control. Sound is awesome!
- custom exhaust tips 4x90mm



Little video with open cutouts in teh tunnel

My 550xi moded

The Beast has a brother.

Love the cutout sound, reminds me of my muffler delete.

The Hamann kit looks good, gives a sporty OEM look.

How's the ride with the 22's?

Only thing I dont like is the chrome trim and grills.

Finally another modded GT

It's ok on 22) But sometimes they are expecting you for more consideration. And sometimes you can have a cracks like i was so i bought a spare wheel.
Now i'm calm


And i bought a set of 20" 3pc Riverside Trafficstar MZ wheels for traking days.





Put Goodyear Excellence RunFlay tyres on it, but it looks like they are , because after the traking day my rear tyres were ready for utilization.


And i changed the 22" wheels offset. It was 15 for front and 30 for rear. I've made 18 - front and 25 - rear.

Uh, no. If my car were parked next to yours, mine would look like an ugly stepchild. No thanks!

I want your HAMANN kit it looks wicked... Love the lip and sideskirts especially

And drop your car on H&R, it makes all the difference. Better handling, heavier and sportier steering. And it looks amazing.

Also, I can tell you don't have the Sport Package, what about Dynamic Handling?

And I only have 20"s and no aftermarket lips or spoilers next car will though!

I'm actually selling my beast, link is in my bio

Btw, of you want more power, get JB4, it's like magic. DINAN is good too, but it's too expensive and not any better than BMS JB4.

Put on a set of 21' Alpina wheels.






Also get a set of 20' Hamann Anniversary wheels with 255/40 20 and 295/35 20 tyres.


Had them repaited.




Also bought M-sport steering wheel with paddles.


Installation was pretty easy.

Looks great. I have to ask what it is like to drive around Moscow. Friends and colleagues have described the traffic as legendary and judging from all the dash cam photos we see here in the US, it seems like it. Are there good roads nearby where you can stretch it's legs?

I think it is the same like over the world. Like in every big city. A lot of traffic and it is always busy on the roads in Moscow. In smaller towns it is easier to drive.
Roads in Moscow are excellent. Much better then in Europe but outside the Moscow sometimes it is nightmare.
This is usual for the small towns.

And this this highway between two biggest russian cities (Moscow and S.Petersburg). But it is not like this over all road. Just sometimes. And now they are building toll higway so it would be much better.

Russians are now driving more intelligent then before. Like in Europe. They can pass you through the line and they will say you "thank you" with the blinkers.
I'm not using car a lot in Moscow. I don't want to spend several hours stucked in the traffic jams and you never know how much time it takes you to get somewhere by car. I'm always using underground.
This you can see every day, not all Moscow but everytime in some different places.

Sometimes police closing the roads for a while to let pass the President or somebody else. Sometimes it takes more then while. People hates that


In Moscow there are a lot of very expensive cars but if you go more in the middle of the Russia majority of cars becomes LADA, UAZ, GAZ e.t.c.
Now it is very popular to make something like this with old Russia cars.

More on east majority of the cars are RH because people are importing cars from Japan. The cost is the same like russian cars but quality much better.
