Outside of that, looks great
You got that right.

Pathetic !

well now THIS looks amazing. night and day from the original. stunned. who would have thought bringing the light housings in to touch the grille would have made that much of a difference. very, very well done BMW.

So, I guess this brings it more inline with the X4 too?

And with the F15 X5. It now looks like a baby X5.

Waiting on the M Performance parts. Any idea what's coming out for the X3. I saw the X5 stuff, but haven't seen anything for the X3.

Don't you guys remember that ALL BMW's used to have the headlights mounted IN the grill? Also, the kidney's used to lean forward as opposed to back. BMW has just gone back to a modern interpretation of that design language.

I'm not suggesting that you have to like it, but I think that is the thought behind it.


Oh, and the X3 looks great, especially the interior!

Didnt even notice that! I will be offering led turn signals for that.

Remember punching holes to get side markers into your jdm goodness?
