Not anymore....but it took some work to get it that way, ie shaving the fender trim and massaging the fender liner etc.

I'm lucky as the missus is entirely behind most work that's done to the X1......even to the point of pushing me to get on and do a few things I've been putting off.

I just got the kw v1 for my wife and will install this weekend. At your height, what kind of camber are you seeing? Any significant wear on the tires? And in general, can camber be adjusted much on the x1?


Thank you,

Noel

If i remember correctly it's around -2.1 in the rear. There is adjustment on the stock camber bolts, however, that was the closest to stock they could get in the rear. Anything further would likely need adjustable control arms or similar.

No undue levels of tire wear yet as the toe has been adjusted accordingly.

Yeah, he tried calling me yesterday but I was stuck in meetings literally all day. I need to talk to him anyway, so we'll try and get some measurements and figure out what you need

Was back in today to hear the good word. It's 1/2 good news, 1/2 bad news. Good news is they can do the Brombacher for me, bad news is they might not be able to do the finish I want.

kool....i might use a heat gun to heat it up a bit and bend it upward instead of shaving it. I think bending it upward you can skip trying to trim the wheel-well carpet aswell.

Thanks. We wound up at -1.9 in the fronts and -2.1 and 2.3 in the rears. Looks like a wagon now...

Apologies as I still haven't got that picture taken. Heating the trim piece may work, but you'll only get a small amount of additional clearance by doing this......unless you are removing the plastic rivets as well.

The wheel well carpet is a pain but you may get away without touching it.

I think a meet would be decent Anton....I still haven't seen your X1. I'm retiring the X1 from winter duties this year so a meet up before the snow flies would be good.
Which reminds me, a for sale thread might be in order for a few things (winter mats etc)

Saturday may work for me. I'm taking the car in to dealership on Friday to check exhaust noise it makes when cold. And would like them to reprogram some things. Hopefully I'll get it back same day. I know Mark is in the deep south, where in the city are you Twix?

Mats are Weathertech.
Winter setup is HRE P40 rep's with Hakka R's.....that said, a guy at work has dibs on them at the moment but we'll see if he's serious when I next speak with him.

Front and rear mats....I'll drop you a PM with a price mate.
And yes, I have a new winter/daily vehicle. No, it's nothing like an Evo.
