I had a hard time deciding to change or not to change. They both look great and are completely different taste! I wish I could afford two X3s :angel:tromar1 said:Wow! The X looks great. I always thought that i liked the standard black bumpers until i saw yours.
I think the Black bumper look good on a darker color. The body kit definately looks great with your color choice.simoncpw said:I had a hard time deciding to change or not to change. They both give look great with completely different taste! I wish I could afford two X3s :angel:
I totally agree with you Black bumer looks good on darker color! If I had a darker color, ie: Highland Green, , I'd probably keep it's original SUV look and not add the body kit. Don't think the body kit would work well with darker color.tromar1 said:I think the Black bumper look good on a darker color. The body kit definately looks great with your color choice.
Any interior mods?
When I put my 60G iPod w/ 5000+ song in my last car (RX) for the first time, I slapped myself for not doing it earlier! Didn't have to deal with discs any more; I don't encode my music to MP3, I use AAC @320kps, don't think the BMW CD can play this; also, I want to take out the CD-Changer and claim back the little storage space.tromar1 said:I always wondered about the IPod. It's the only thing i will definately not get. with an mp3 player...i don't see the need.
Why BMW rims? I'm thinking about Davin 19" SP2 with chrome insert. Too pricey, though. The wife would kill me.
I didn't know we could change the steering wheel. Talk to me about it.
Looks fantastic.simoncpw said:Here are some Before and After shots......
Go for it, you won't regret it. It was very easy to install on my RX300. AVIC-N2 - I believe it can control an external CD-Changer? If so, it should work with icelink as it just translates the iPod as a CD-Changer. HOWEVER, I'm still scratch my head as to where and how to mount the iPod in the X3 and looks slick :dunno:tromar1 said:Damn, Simon...you almost converted me. I am going to give the iPod a second look. However, I'm not using a BMW biz radio. I have the Pioneer AVIC-N2. However, you mentioned changing disc, and that i do...and it's getting on my nerve...eventhough I have a disc with hundreds of songs on it. I have to keep burning new discs if i want a new song included.
Regarding Rims...if you saw one you like, maybe you could have it shipped. However, since the wife likes it and you already have one that you like, then it's a mute point.
I know about the steering wheel...but i thought you choose the one you had as an option. So, if i'm correct, you have two?
Tis the question...where to mount. I drove my installers crazy with my mods. I like things seamless, so i'll probably have it integrated through a custom install. However, my only caveat is what happens when the technology changes or gets better.simoncpw said:Let me know what decision on the iPod and if you have any idea where to mount it !!!
No winter here, and ebay probably will not work as shipping for wheels will probably cost a bomb. I'll probably keep them to deco my gaming room (plays GT4 only :thumbup: )
I'm not certain if you were referring to me or simoncpw. I too am tired of silver/chrome for rims. I'm going with Black/graphite.SabreXray said:I love what you have done with your X3. I agree about maybe going with aftermarket rims, but the "Y"s are a big improvement over the "plain janes" I am tired of silver, seems like 75% of the X3s around here are silver (and I live in Germany). IMHO, yours is what all X3s should look like stock.
I have the dark grey (whatever that name is) and got that because of the black bumpers. I find that the bumpers get dirty pretty easily. I Armor All them all the time to keep 'em clean. With the kit (I assume), some of the dirt and stuff will blend in and not show as much. I agree with those who think that the X3 should have come with matching color.tromar1 said:I think the Black bumper look good on a darker color.
