6 Top Manly Styling Mods for the BMW X5
Back in 2000, BMW’s first crossover SUV was announced as an SAV, or Sports Activity Vehicle. Now in 2011, BMW has introduced more than 4,000 new parts and improvements to the original design. A new turbocharged 6-cylinder engine produces 300 bhp which is 40 bhp than last year’s model. For acceleration, you can expect 0-60 in just over 6 seconds. The exterior is very similar to previous models, with a reshaped rear lower bumper and revised tail lights, and the fog lights in the front have been moved inboard. With the six top styling mods below, you can customize your BMW and make it truly unique. So get your self a car loan and get your ride modded up.
BMW Body Kits
Feel like a totally new and original look? Then consider a body kit to change the exterior appearance of your X5, and there is only one way to do it right – with an aftermarket body kit. Instead of buying a new car, adding a set of ground effects parts will give you an amazing new style and sense of fashion. You can really improve your street cred when you fit a custom body kit. Many aftermarket kids look fantastic, and also can radically improve your aerodynamics, reduce wind drag, and enhance performance when you race or just cruise along.
Corbeau A4 Reclining Seat
The Corbeau A4 is the perfect racing seat for your X5. At the track or on the street, the A4 will improve your comfort and driving pleasure. The A4 will fit up to a 33-37 inch waist, and the wide-version A4 will fit up to 41 inches. The seat has reinforced high-wear patches to protect the seat from extreme use. This racing seat is available in cloth, microsuede and 100% real leather. A fully adjustable reclining system is easily controlled by your fingertips, to allow you to reach your optimum driving position. Just lift the lever to return to a full upright setting. Bolsters offer terrific lateral support, to keep you in prime driving position and reduce driver fatigue. The seat also has harness slots for 3-, 4-, and 5-point racing harnesses.
Superior Alloy Wheels

Mercerdes-style L-shaped Day Running Lights
Jazz up your BMW with the latest Mercedes styling. These L-shaped day running lights have created a buzz on the car-mod scene, and have become an extremely popular accessory. They can be easily fitted to X5s. The standed fitting includes 6 high-power LEDs per fixture, so they are very bright even in daylight. Not only do they look great, but increase your visibility at night for both safety and style! You can wire these either into either the sidelamps or the ignition, depending on whether you want them on all the time the ignition is on, or just when the sidelamps are switched on.
LED Head Rest Lights
Add a fresh new look to your car’s interior. These lights in green, red or blue, fit snugly between the seat-back and the headrest, with illumination both forward and back. The lights can be switched on and off from the instrument panel, and are clearly visible to other drivers on the road.
Richbrook Leather Gearshaft Gaiters
These beautiful gearshaft gaiters (sleeves) are made from soft Italian leather, in a variety of colours and sizes. These are easy to fit, as they use Velcro and corded tietops, as well as elastic collar at the bottom.
