Looks Great!
How do you like the exhaust?
How does it sound?
Any videos of the sound?

I'm considering lowering my X5 as well. What did you use? Springs, coilovers, bags? What exact product and manufacturer? How does it ride?

Thanks.

Here's the link that you can check it out.
The sound is very loud and i like it. But you can put in silent mode as well
Im using airsuspension stock from BMW and I bought lowering links BBM from ebay. Its a little bit bumpy when you put it on lowest setting.

Wheels look nice but do you have any pic of the wheels after being thoroughly cleaned? I'm sure the improvement in looks will be significant.

Btw, any rearview pics of your exhaust?
What do tips look like?
Thanks,
Ted
