I will share the good news once they are available for ordering.
I have a great success on F97/F98 X3M/X4M platform and installed a few in 2/3/4/5 series platform. Even the M8.
Great, please keep us posted. It is must needed for this vehicle.

The G05 X5 crew is HIGHLY interested as well. We have a solid group ready, but not overly interested in Eibach and with hesitation about H&R with no review. MSS has great reviews on the X3M, so many of us would make the leap quick.

What kind of issues? How long (or how many miles) did it take for them to develop?

I was split b/n the M5 and X5M, and the X5M just seemed like the better choice. This is predominantly my winter vehicle in city with lots of hills and potholes. I also have two tater tots in car seats. They are rarely in my vehicle, but still have two seats in the back at all times.

I think the RSQ8 or Urus both have a great stance. Looking for something similar to that.

Id say its more popular to de-chrome (remove it) in the US versus adding more chrome.

The popularity of black (or dark wheels), black kidney grilles, Shadowline exterior trim around the windows, door handles, and side vents/grilles, and black model nomenclature (badges) is more prevalent than chroming these items.

Really? Didnt know that.

Every video I have seen was about chrome, ultra big wheels, low ride, "jumping cars" - hydraulic susp, lot of speakers etc

Absolutely not my style... Take a look at Cayenne Turbo, has air suspension, more importantly no massive 4 inch wheel gap

Why dont you take Cayenne instead of x5m? Cayenne is also nice car...

Or its "just" about the gap you dont like?

Previous x5ms had these gaps too :

2017

2012
https://1car.one/img/2012-bmw-x5-m-192533365475/0.jpg

Maybe its not only about the design but functionallity?
For example if you lover your suspension and hit some hole in road you may damage you car..

I'm not buying either. Have a RR sport and 911. I'm a BMW/Car enthusiast and love the X5M, wheel gap not so much is all.
