They look smaller than 21". From looking around, he had a thread where you participated and he said this in regards to his upgrade: "Standard 18" are too small due to huge wheel well so I want to upgrade to 20" with all season. Don't want to go 21" due to NYC road and snow conditions."

Maybe he changed his mind, but 21" and 22" (my rim is like his) aren't supposed to be noticeably that much different. However, from his pic, there's a huge difference from mine, and they do offer the replica in 20".

I think you're right. I seem to remember he may have said somewhere that they're 20" reps (of the 21" OEM's..), but I could be wrong and couldn't find the thread earlier. I was thinking they didn't look like 21's too, especially with that much sidewall on the tires.

Hey AG64, looking good. The black rails vs silver, 6 and one half dozen, as the car has both colors. Good call, to not wait. HUD, surround and MC mice touches.

The silver does look really nice. I remember back in the early-mid 2,000's when silver was all the rage. Now white and black seem to be the most popular, at least around my area.

To me silver is a matter of conviniece for where i live - NYC. Especially in the winter time i found it to be the best at hiding the salt and grime. Glacier Silver actuallly appear to be a bit lighter and with maybe a slight bluish tint in direct sunlight. Had a chance to compare to an older X5 while parked opposite each other on the street.
A few observations:
Steering is a lot lighter, in fact when i picked it up i was overcompensating by twisting wheel too far
MC seats while great feel quite a bit 'thinner' then the ones on 2011.
I wish the grab handle on the driver's side door was more towards the edge of the door. I keep missing it when entering the car, since its fairly narrow and more towards the dashboard.
Carpets are very thin as well, in fact mine keeps flopping on the brake pedal after exiting the car (probably just me twisting it when i exit.
The humongous key already has scratches from being in my pocket with other keys. Ordered a cover for it. Maybe it will bring back 'man purse' - on the other hand 'Are you glad to see me, or is that a BMW key in your pocket?' could be a difficult question to answer.
Glad i got the Lux Line, i think painted arches actually make the 19 inch wheel look like they are bigger (if that makes sense). The black arch trim would actually 'extend' the wheel well whe looking at it sideways.
And the streeng weel being a bit thicker doesn't hurt.

I didn't really have a chance for a longer drives over the weekend - 35 miles total LOL. Should post more impressions when i get a chance to drive/play more

I agree that silver isn't very common...I see a lot of white and black out here, so glad to be a little different...
Great pics. Thanks for posing.
