Would love if I could afford me some HRE 640Rs or 646Rs and a Hamann body kit. Hell, right now I'd be happy if I could get 4.6is wheels and body kit. Instead, I think I'll be putting that money to track events with the M

out of curiosity, is the rear end supposed to sit that high? i see all the pics of the 1's here and mine isn't even close to the same height in the rear.
never mind all. when i went out to it this morning, it was level. i'm guessing that during transport, while tied down, they must've really cranked down on the thing.
ronin, where'd u get the tail lights?
Hope you don't mind Brian (broknlgs24), but how much did you get the 4.6 for and how much mileage?
$53k w/ 18k miles.
there was one at a dealership in GA that i was looking at, but the dealer wouldn't negotiate at all and his X5 had more mileage.
ronin, thanks for the info. regarding the tail lights.
i've been looking for accessories for my X5, but am having 1 hell of a time finding anything. any suggestions?
i haven't been here in awhile. i have some updated pictures. everybody's cars are looking sweet. keep it up!
G'day fellow X5ers
