Photoshop of my vision

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
So I've loved the X4 concept since the first time I laid eyes on it.

The problem with the production version is two fold.
1. The XLine to me looks much nicer and closer to the concept than the MSport. Fine by me, saves me some $$ lol

but 2. Its the wheel/tire setup. They're just too puny... and to me it just ruins the profile of the whole thing. It just doesn't have that beefy look. I0 think it needs a decent set of 19's or 20's fairly wide with a decent thickness of tire to fill out the wheel wells a bit. Not monster truck stuff, but at least I'd say something like a 50 series tire... and then to ensure it doesn't have some kidna jacked up monster truck look, maybe an inch or so drop. no slamming, no hella flush, just enough to bring it back into proportion.

So to do this you'd be throwing off the speedo, but I dont think the overall combination woudl be that much taller in diameter that it would screw with suspension geometry too much.

Either way did a photoshop of what I was thinking on an Xline.

1. Carried more silver accents in the lower Xline fascia to more closely resemble the concept

2. Lowered a bit

3. Larger Linea Course LC818's with beefier tires

4. On the rear I "painted body color" a little more (not all) of the plastic cladding. did this freehand really quickly so excuse the imperfections.

Whatchaguys think yay or nay?

Nice job in Photoshop, looks good. I'm not a fan of the silver accents and trim so that doesn't rattle my chain but I do like the size and style of the wheels.
Looks like those on the Machan??
I think you should be hired by BMW to help design cars.
