I have not read of one story yet of anyone getting into a problem..so I think you're good!

If you really wanna be safe - get smoked reflectors because they still retain their use! I know it's not "blacking it out" fully but it still retains function...

Get blacked out reflectors and tinted side grills. I've never gotten any trouble for those. For the "blackout" theme... I would suggest smoking your tail lights and headlights.

Is that your X5 with an M badge?

i dont kno but painting the stock 18s to black def makes that gap look bigger compared to them being the stock gunmetal look

1. Black reflectors

2. Colormatched sidevents w/ smoked lens

3. Black rear ///M3 emblem (i.e the mfest emblem for different look)

4. Lose the BMW centercaps ASAP IMO. Or get a spare set and be creative or just paint them black. (doing this will also keep people wondering what kinda wheels you got )

5. Springs/Coils, why not?

If you asked my opinion about color matching the 18" wheels I would have said no, but I have to admit that they look great!
