I second that. This car was my inspiration for ordering a G05, up until I saw this thread I was on the fence about getting X5.

I have the air suspension option. You can lower the car in any mode even further by swapping the OEM fixed plastic leveling arms with shorter adjustable ones. 100 dollar swap

Looks awesome! Obviously you are lowered, but the stance is so much better than the new F95. And you better stop postponing swapping on those winter shoes!!! j/k I'm holding out a little longer myself!

Nice, I'll have to look into that once mine arrives. A few noob questions:

Mind sharing the source for the shorter adjustable arms?? And how much lower does it go compared to stock air suspension? And how do you go about adjusting the height of the new leveling arms?

Thanks!

Oh wow, quite low then. Looks slammed and aggressive. Any rubbing? And do you know if they sell arms that arenít as low, maybe 1Ē lower than standard? I couldnít find them on their website.

Thanks!

They are adjustable. Standard setting is about 1.2-5" lower in each setting. Your loading height becomes drive height in sport

Your car looks amazing!! Just purchased a g05 40, Iím interested in the lowering links that you have, are you able to adjust the front to 3mm instead of 6mm if wanted will it give less of a drop?

After lowering did the ride become harsh?
Did your car need an alignment? And did the instructions come in English?

There is no difference in ride quality. It's identical. 6mm on the links equals to about a 1.5-1.8" drop. 3mm is also possible and would equal about .75 -1" drop. Alignment is recommended but it was not off by much after my installation. I used Google translate on my instructions but it's pretty straight forward. Installation level is about 4/10. You have to be gentle removing the plastic links from the plastic ball fittings. If not heated up they will break

Got it. So they sent you the instructions over email & than translated. I figured maybe the ride will get a little more bouncy due to the height

Now the loading height does it get lower than the previous height? If so an additional 1.5" must be slammed

Instructions come on a paper included in the box. Google translate app allows you to take a photo of the paper and gives you a direct translation . Yes. In loading mode it's tucking tire
