Has anyone ever seen a lifted X3?

Just curious as I am not a big fan of the X3 but was thinking the other day that it could look pretty sweet with a lift. Was trying to find some pics but haven't had any luck.

I don't think it can be lifted much more... Remember it's based on a 3 series, so I'm not sure how much farther those independent control arms and struts can travel.

There was that semi-lifted X5 that was on Fifth Gear a few years ago. It was a support vehicle for the BMW motorcycles on the Dakar Rally.



Even the X5's that compete in the Dakar aren't lifted that much...

It's not like the X3 isn't ugly enough as is...
