2014 Bmw x1 s drive 2.8i running style 351's

Hello guys, I've picked up my x1 for a while now and finally got around posting pictures. My X1 is pretty stripped and lightweight model. I'm running style 351 rims from my bros f10. . The tires are primacy hp run-flat 245/40/19 275/35/19. I've also created the closed group on Facebook called Bmw X1 Club USA, there are some pretty hardcore X1 owners over from Bmw X1 Club Taiwan on there. If any of you are interested, feel free to join!

Options: M sport package, power seats, Lightning package.
Future plans: jb4 stage 2, catless downpipes, afe intake, h&r springs, ap racing bbk, e93 m3 sway bars.

Love how clean that looks. Those rims are pretty sweet. Will look even better with H&R springs.

Thank you! It was a real pain.Took me around 10 mins using a string floss. The time consuming part was cleaning the surface with goo gun.

I wouldn't think. I don't know your rim size/offsets but I would guess the optional 19" style 225M would be pretty close to what you have. I think they are: 8.5x19 ET34 / 9.5x19 ET34

Thanks I believe he is running stock 225/255 tires, style 351 from the f10 are 19x8.5 et 33 and 19x9 et 44 so I probably won't be able to run spacers without rubbing after its lowered.

I presume the badges are stuck on with some sort of glue?
What is goo gun? and would you know of any other similar products that could be used to clean the surface. Thanks.

Goo Gone. Use fishing line, an old credit card, or dental floss to remove the badge. There are tons of write-ups online about how to do it.
