Looks awesome, nice work. I did the same thing with the M side mirrors and it is one of my favourite mods. How do you find the racechip ultimate in conjunction with the MPPK. What did you feel gained (seat of your pants) from it? Looks awesome tho, the red stripping gives it a cool look.

Thanks, I appreciate the kind words.
I've had the 35i; without any engine mods, with RCU only, with MPPK only, and with MPPK & RCU. I prefer the combination of MPPK and RCU for the best bang for your buck. You can really feel the power with the combo over the MPPK alone. I wish I would have had a dyno completed before and after each install, but I just never did it. I feel that it's worth the investment.
I have to give the credit to Alan for the red stripe, but I love how it accents the splitter/diffuser.
Cheers!

Now that you have all the stick on bits, you really need some wheels! I always find that adding ground effects etc. on stock wheels looks a bit off.

I like the 469M wheels on the X5 so I intend to stick with them for while. Also, I have two sets of them so I use one for my winter tires. I'm sure eventually I'll want to change them out for a new look.

Hah, yeah, I'm very fortunate for sure. Luckily, when I sold my 2015 X6 M Sport the buyer only wanted the the winter set of wheels/tires, so it left me with an extra set. Then, the dealer I purchased my X5 from threw in a free set of Pirelli Scorpion winter tires for the 469M set-up.
Cheers!

Can you get a closer pic of those mirror caps front and back. And Did you just snap them on your stock mirrors?

Here is a top view, they replace the stock mirror cap entirely. In order to do this mod you have to order the front ring and mirror cap of your choice.

So the front ring just replaces the existing front ring and then the cap attaches to that? Don't suppose you have a part number for the ring?
