Removed my window tint and spacers that were causing rubbing in the rear. Much happier with the classic look. Debating going back to OEM angel eye bulbs as well.

What size were your spacers?

Classic look is good for a while till the bug bites you again, it comes and goes.

10mm spacers, OEM ZCP wheels, 265/35 tires, and lowered on Eibach springs. I enjoyed the look with spacers but it wasn’t worth chewing up tires and fender liners for.

Should have pulled your fenders just a little.

I did, best thing ever!

Thanks to and a few others the OEM X5 silver PY24w bulb was the way to go. I am very pleased with how it turned out.

For those curious wheels don't have to come off. I gained plenty of access by turning wheel fully left for driver side (wheel points out) or right for passenger light.

The order of the pics is off. Last one was halfway through for comparison (driver side is silver bulb)
QQ. do you have the part# for the X5 silver finish blub? Mine is getting really dim and looking for a replacement. thanks

Sorry I don't remember, I've had them for years. If you're looking for a nice set I'd checkout downforce.

It's painted gloss back, and I do have a sunroof. I love how it turned out, I'd recommend it

Got the "INCREASED EMISSIONS/SES" light when I started the car yesterday afternoon. Took it for a 15 mile drive on the freeway. No loss of power, rough idle or any noticeable symptoms. Dropping it off at ACM for a check up and the yearly oil change later this week.

Used it to celebrate Merica and when I got my 1M allocation in July 2011. Both 2011 BMW products as a tandem are something I will always cherish and so grateful I exited my F80 Comp to ultimately land in the E90.
