AlexFL's X3MC build - when too much is not enough

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Bought this BSM 2020 X3M Competition as my practical daily driver but fell in love with her and decided to customize her a bit. Chose to follow the “murdered out” aesthetics. Started the work when COVID hit us hard, in February 2020, and it took me eight months to finish this project. Huge thanks to “RG Sport” Ben for all the amazing support! Furthermore, I would like to thank:
- B.C., the mysterious photographer
- IND Distribution for the help with the 3D Design parts
- My local customization shop Extreme Performance
- My local motorsport club Extreme Velocity Motorsports
- Eurowerks Automotive in Pompano Beach
- Vossen guys: Kyle and Jahi
- And last but not least, my friends and fellow modders on the X3M Forum

Have become a big fan of BMW M SAVs – best daily drivers, in my opinion. Next on my list is an X5M Competition and I can’t wait to start working on it. My list of mods is attached. I’ll post the photos in several batches. Enjoy.

It's been enjoyable watching your amazing 'bit' of a build over the months - thanks for taking us along for the ride!

So is this the correct place to throw in my towel? Now I just want to bring mine to carmax and just get a prius.

That's a solid 8 months. Very sick. Love the stance/drop. Everything. Well done.

That's a nice looking vehicle. Well done sir!

The wheels in batch 3 look silver, LOL is that the lighting or did you switch between silver and black at some point? I'm liking the black wheels.

I think you have the perfect balance between performance and maintaining the original aesthetic characteristics of the vehicle. Very clean, understated and not in your face.

Thank you very much. The wheels are in “polished dark smoke” color. Depending on the light conditions, they may look dark or shiny-silvery.
