No complaints. I actually think the car rides/handles better with the 22". Since I have 285/35R22 all-season non-runflat tires, the ride comfort feels very similar to the 19" run-flats I had before. Plus, the car looks phenomenal, especially under the lights .

$1628 for both wheels and tires mounted and balanced. To get the deal with tires (Delinte D8 DesertStorm are what I have and they handle really well and are really solid for the price), call them directly. They offer other tire choices as well with different prices. Here's the original ebay link. Call up Wheel Plus and ask for Diego. Tell him Omar with the 2014 X5 referred you. http://www.ebay.com/itm/22-BMW-X5-X6...b97ae2&vxp=mtr

However, if you're trying to stick with a 20" staggered size, go for these M6 style wheels: http://www.ebay.com/itm/22-BMW-X5-X6...b97ae2&vxp=mtr. They look amazing. Their price is $1849 because of the more expensive tire.

Agreed. It looks great, HamadNasser! What camera did you use to capture this beautiful scene?

@cy07, you guys do have the same color (I believe Sophisto Grey is the alternate name). Here's his original thread: http://f15.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho...p?t=997324...I think he has the 451 rims.

Precisely. I saw it on the road once and I just fell in love with it and thought I must get it!
It is such a great colour, and different from all the black coloured F15's I always see on the road.
Appreciate it ! Glad my taste is getting accolaides

Nice! I saw one at dealer and I thought it's the best color with xLine without the hassle of being Black! How's the color treating you so far? Easy to maintain the shine?

Looks great, and thanks Opasha, for pointing out it's the same grey. I really thought it was BSM at first.

I used to have a black X6 E71 so I thought i'd change the colour but not too much since i prefer dark colours on my cars.
The downside really is having to wash it every other day. The heat and the dust over here makes it hard to maintain the shine during the day but at night it is all good. One great option that I got complementary with the vehicle from the showroom is that I got paint protection. That makes it easier to maintain the colour for longer periods of time. If you don't have the paint protection I would highly recommend it !

Hammad, I need your advice, buddy. My detail guy is offering C Quartz Finest and Opticoat Pro. Which one should I choose? He's the best detailer where I live and is reasonable. He recommended C Quartz. It will cost me $825 for the whole body and to coat my wheels. Opticoat will be $100 extra. What do you recommend? Thanks .

To be frank I don't know anyone who has installed Opticoat but I do know a few guys who went across the boarder (Oman) to install C Quartz.
Their cars seem perfectly fine and protected and if i'm not mistaken they have a 2-3 year warranty.
I just did some research and what I noticed is that opticoat is for more high-end cars like BMW, Audi and MB.
I think i'd go with C Quartz too since i've seen their work and it would save you $100. But I would recommend you ask your detailer for examples of each and then maybe you can make a decision based on the cars and its protection.

Thanks for the feedback, my friend. I actually did a lot of research and read a lot of threads, but I wanted to get some information from fellow BMW guys. I saw my detail guy's work, and he did a phenomenal job on both. I actually saw an OptiCoat Pro recent job on a metallic white (similar to my Mineral White) Toyota FRS and the thing gleamed in the sunlight. I think I might go for the C Quartz .

I'd go for the same. It is important that you see the work for yourself before deciding.
