Well I just spent the same amount as a well equipped F82 so the plan for this motor is performance. And then make it somewhat more pleasing to look at.

Congratulations and welcome. Think you will love the F15. This is my first X5 also and after a couple weeks of ownership I love it more every day. They are amazing SAVs.

Went ahead and ordered OEM Gloss black grills from Tenafly BMW in NJ for $135 shipped

Also IND Alpine White reflectors front and rear for $168 w/3 day shipping

Can't believe how expensive OEM Perf parts are LOL!

Now not sure what tune to go with...

Guess I'll be using this as my progress/build thread


Got my vin emailed from my sales rep. In India at the moment can't wait to see if it's done and delivered. It was on finishing touches when I left Dec 11th.

Here you go. These are the part numbers and the cheapest prices I could find.

Front Lip: 51192334549
Read Diffuser: 51192339222

Google Search for parts:
Front Lip: https://www.google.com/search?q=bmw+...a&channel=fflb
Rear Diffuser: https://www.google.com/search?q=bmw+...a&channel=fflb

Cheapest Prices: ESCTuning usually has the cheapest due to their shipping. However, since you're in Bulgaria, I would check with their international ship rates. BMWOFMORRISTOWN ships to Bulgaria and charges US $57.66 for shipping/handling and $308.24 for import fees (estimated). You would get it between Jan 8-Jan 20 it seems.

Front Lip:
1) BMWOFMORRISTOWN: http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-M-Perfor...96546#shpCntId - $1099 (they ship to Bulgaria)
2) ECSTUNING: http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/Front_Lip/ES2733439/ - $1243.61

Rear Diffuser:
1) ECSTUNING: http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-F15-X5_...ody/ES2733974/ - $1110.11

Just search the part numbers and try to find places near you to get the best deals.

@opasha, as always, a wealth of knowledge. I am trying to find a local company that copies BMW performance parts. F15 is pretty new so nothing yet in Korea thus far. I am sure someone will make it.

+1 $3k+ for a front lip, rear diffuser, rear fins, and a rear spoiler is a bit much on account of what it is all

Does anybody have any DIY's for removing old and installing new reflectors?

Can't believe how expensive OEM Perf parts are LOL!

Now not sure what tune to go with...Anybody feel free to chime in
Wow, that is cheap for the gloss black kidney grill.
Do make sure that is the price for a set. Because BMW sells them as each.
For the reflector DIY, look under my posts, I have made the DIY and posted it already.
You may want to consider the M50d grill trim since you are halfway there when replacing the front painted sidemarker.
