Looking good r33, love those wheels on your ride. I like the diffuser on Zipforia's X5 as well...something I've been considering on mine, along with CF mirror caps.

Haha, sorry, Z! It just reminded me of your exact car and looked too good to not share .

Just translated the article for the one that looks like yours and that's a custom paint job in Frozen Matte Grey!

Do you think you will go with the rear painted reflectors ever?
I ordered mine from you and am just waiting for delivery of my 2015 X5 M-sport.
I'll PM you when I get a ETA from my CA (btw-what does CA stand for? haha) to schedule an appt for install, and we can also talk about the Burger tune for 50i.
Thanks for the informative posts!

I don't plan to get the painted rear reflector, as it is functional and it is like that on the ROW.
I know that SA is Service Advisor, I think CA is Customer Assistant??
For sure, can't wait to play with the 5.0i. I read that it is close to the E70 X5M fast.

R33, could you please remind me:
1) how much better is the Brembo package compared to the M-performance brake-kit (or truth be told, E70 X5M brakes) in daily driving (i.e. outside of track)?
2) what's the total damage on the Brembo kit (both front and rear)?

Costs about 8k front and rear combined I think. Also want more inputs on this, in the market for better brakes as well.

BTW how hard is it to install front reflector? Dealer promises to install the black grill for me in time of pick up for free, but they not sure about the reflector.

It's not too bad from r33's good instructions. Read up on it in his pdf here: http://f15.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho....php?t=1001633

@armen383 and @cy07,
The brembo are a nice brake kit.
But for street use, it may overkill it.
Here are the facts that will help you making the decision.

M Performance Brake Kit
- Made by Brembo based on the basic model
- 4 pistons Front and conventional 1 piston rear
- Regular vented disc rotors
- Rubber brake line
- Default color Blue (was black in early E70/E71 X5M/X6M)
- 395mm front / 385mm rear rotor diameter

Brembo GT
- The street/track version
- Equipped with Street version brake pad
- 6 pistons Front and 4 pistons Rear
- Cross-drilled rotor (also available in slotted)
- Braided stainless steel brake line
- Default color Black, Silver, Red, and Yellow
- 405mm front / 380mm rear rotor diameter

IMHO, I loved the Brembo more since it has 6 pistons front and 4 pistons rear. And of course, the cross drilled.
