Cool ride. I got the same exterior M sport package on my 2011. Do you remember what LED angel eyes you got?

I had a local shop refinish all the wheels. For sandblasting and powder coating I paid $500cad

I wish I had the M sport package! My x5 has the base trim which I had painted white. Angel eyes are factory. In 2012 BMW switched to white lights instead of yellow

About 2 months ago I bit the bullet and ordered the Android Head Unit from 4x4 shop Canada. Overall I am super happy with the unit ever since I routed audio through an USB DAC

Before


After







Some of the plastic housing had to be trimmed to clear the mounting points


Routed the wires


Wrapped any connectors with weather stripping to prevent and rattles


USB extension to arm rest for DAC

Another USB extension for my mp3s which live on a 64gb USB

Got myself a fault EMP sensor or an exhaust leak. You can see the exhaust pressure slowly build over time in a linear way in this run. You can also see how other parameters fluctuate during the couple runs I did. Still no CEL...

there really isn't a market for used parts. they are still sitting in my garage. cost will be different for the 535 since you have to drop the subframe on the x5 to get the dpf out. which tune are you going with?

I switched over from another mainstream tuner to BRR and it's completely changed the way my x5d drives. The power comes on instantly unlike with the other tune where it would feel like it's slowly building up power over the the rpm range. I've been running xdelete since the beginning of summer and now I'm considering going back to xdrive as the rears (315) keep breaking loose. Even when changing lanes I find myself not even switching into S on the trans to get that extra passing power. I'll share more as I put more KMs on

Are you on the BMW diesel Facebook group? I'm sure there's someone in your area that you can go for a ride with. It's completely transformed the x5d when you compare it to stock

Love this build! This looks exactly how I imagined my X5 looking...

A couple questions for you.
1. Do you still have that OEM display and would you be willing to sell it? I bought mine scratched up and can't stand how it looks.
2. How did you get that M-series look with the all white? I love how your bumper, fenders, and side skirt all match. I would love to get my 35d to looks like this.

I'm down in Seattle. Let me know if you ever head down this way!

Since I got my x5d in 2012 I've never used the 3rd row once. After thinking about deleting the 3rd row to install a spare for couple years, I finally did it. Overall it was straight forward process.

Thanks ARD!

I am going to hold onto the 3rd row in case I ever want to sell the x5 (which I highly doubt I would after all the work I've put into it)

Picked up an X5m steering wheel with nappa leather from a wrecker in Alberta a few weeks ago. Install was fairy straight forward minus running wires from the steering wheel to the transmission. Also noticed the X5m wheel doesn't get nearly as warm as the original sport wheel did but it's not that big of a deal.
