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.

Just a guess here - it was either photoshopped or they did the suspe soon mod and changed the tires. They look like rubber bands.

Photoshopped the front wheels look too large have f 21/22 combo from the factory

Whoever is first with a sleeve kit will get my money. I can't handle looking at this thing so high.

I've heard good things about MSS. Can you (RG Sport) contact you POC at MSS and ask can they do a group buy, and expedite the production of the spring/kit for F95 X5M Comp. If they wait too long KW or HR will beat them to finish line?

i agree. once MSS comes out with a kit they will have my money. This is the highest (wheel gap) X5 i've ever owned where even my wife and kids have some issues getting in without stepping all over my side sills.

I think the 21/22 combo also highlights it at the front. In Australia we have a heap of x3m running around with mss kit and they look great.


Agree whoever is first will clean up. It's not like you buy the kit more than once

Been bugging the owner, seems like they are not prioritizing it.
I guess KW would be ready before they are.
