No offense, but I'm assuming your X5M has ridiculously beefy and low profile tires on them, correct?

It's an SUV ... And for snow purposes, you're supposed to put on narrow tires.

(I get that aesthetically, monster truck tires look pretty cool from behind, but man that functionality goes right out the window.)

But at the end of the day, she's got an X5M and I don't, so I can't talk. Haha

buying any new bmw is dumb unless its a limited item like the M2 CS, 1m, m coupe.

thats why you let some sucker take the depreciation first. then pick up one a few years later. e92 M3s are a great buy right now and will likely start going up like the e46.

rock chips? just clear bra your car. never worry about the paint again.

Imagine what the 911 turbo s buyers feel like WHEN volunteer to debadge their cars from factory. just another boxter to the GP. for real 95% of the world just sees BMW, IMO the F8x is so beautifully shaped it could be a nissan for all I care

Never understood this line of thought.

Why wouldn't a person with a 70k car also buy a tune and bolts-ons? If anything the mods relative to the price of the car are a drop in the bucket. They could probably afford it easier.
