What are the width and offset (ET) of your wheels?
What size tires are you using?

Yes I speced them myself. I don't recommend my settings to other people because I don't want dm's complaining about issues they may have after. I calculated these offsets to work with my suspension and lowering links

I noticed your X5 is shown in the JC Sportsline front lip listing. Hope they gave you a discount.

i just ordered a Carbon Black M50i and I definitely want to get the front lip. Your X5 looks awesome.

I did a bit of research on "BBM lowering links".... and the part itself is only like $100, but there aren't many pictures.

How exactly do they work? Does it just "trick" the computer into thinking the car is higher than it actually is?

Do they need to be installed on all 4 corners? Just the front? Just one?

It says installation only takes 40 minutes. Can you elaborate on exactly what the installation consists of?

Any pictures of the install?

Are they adjustable?

4 new level length links at each corner. Lowers the car by 1-2" in each setting

Can you provide the link or your parts source for the parts. I am thinking of doing the same thing. I have a X5 just like yours.

Thanks

I sent you a PM the other day. Shucks that the lowering links only work with the air suspension option on the car my 40i doesn't have that option
