How did you black out your x1 emblem? not sure which way to do mine. I see many people are just buying black ones while some others are just spray painting or plasti dip...

I took mine off and sanded it to give something for the paint to adhere too

Congratulation for getting an imported one with local manufactured price.
But is it a 2012 version before facelift as the turning lights are not integrated with the exterior mirrors, or is the Chinese 2013 version gets the same design?

Yeah its a 2012 Pre-LCI X1. The 2013 X1's look the same as other LCI X1's, though I don't think they offer the M-Sport package in China.

I bought the set from here:

http://bmwshadowline.com/overlays.html

Tons of color choices. Its easy to install/apply, and a breeze to remove as well.

Figured I should update this, even though I've been posting on the general boards more.

So I've painted all the gray plastic parts to Alpine White. Painted the silver front/rear trims to matte black, and also added and painted the X-Line side skirts matte black. Oh, and also vinyl'd the roof rails to matte black as well.

Here's how it looks now:



Also got these small interior mods:


Alum door doorsteps


AC Alum pedal set


Wrapping my steering wheel with this badboy. Suede wrap with white stitching and white leather ring at 12 o'clock.
