Endless Details has lowered his 3". I wouldn't do it personally, but it looks better than the F31 wagon IMO.

Everyone of all ages and styles has liked it a lot... Everyone that comes to the shop loves it and has expressed interest in it. Most people were iffy before it was lowered because the X1 has a high ride height for its size especially the M Package ones... Once I lowered it everyone's tune changed and says that this is how it should have come. And for you all anti lowering SUV people, it is my daily, it has snows on, and there is nowhere I haven't been able to go with it including a rutted gravel driveway 1,000 feet long through the woods
and it handles close to the way my e92 did.
