The car looks great. I would love to get some recommendations on lowering springs for my M50i without the air ride. Can I do just springs or will I need shocks too? I’m sure the M50i springs are already stiffer than the base but no way to know how much more.

Wow that is great to hear - my car will be the wife's daily as well!

Do you have it set to the softest settings or just default road settings?

Default. Last three of my wife's daily's have been on KW so she's used to it by now.

One - the grill is black

Two - spelled chrome

Three - was there a moment when you thought "is there a reason I should post negatively in a community forum where that tone has no place at all?" - because it would have been a solid grown up moment

Four - Black sapphire paint + shadow line trim + extended black package I can't remember the name of = comment of post

Don't want to be rude here or anything, but I always thought triple black refers to paint, wheels and upholstery.

Good looking car nevertheless!

I don't see anything "negative" about his post, he's just pointing something out.

Like this:
Grill = something to cook on
Grille = the thing on the front of your car

.. that said, yeah, the interior color is definitely in the mix of a 'whatever color x whatever color et al.'

Agreed. Black on Black = black exterior & black interior, while his car is a great looking X5, not taking anything away from the car, it looks to have an Ivory interior color.
