Im planning on doing the JB, intake and possibly exhaust and downpipe. Like the carbon fiber wrap interior too. Thats probably it because the truck will be rocket with those tunes.

- Some 19" wheels for summer, most likely AEZ Antigua or Breyton GTP
- Maybe exhaust as I dont like the look of the single tip exhaust on the 25d

That's it, car is fully loaded as orderd and it is not ment to be a project car but my wifes daily driver.

Matte black performance grilles
20mm spacers + extended lugs all around
LUX angel eyes
Carbon fiber interior trim
Blacked out all emblems

Got any pictures man? would love to see the car with spacers, springs and the quad exhaust? which one is it?



I had the BMS intake on my n55 E92 and absolutely loved it, waiting for my X1 to get here and then most likely putting the intake back on!!

Tried talking about Mods in another thread as well, and doesn't seem like many of the X1 owners really care for them...

I like mods as long as they do something for me, the driver.
I don't care as much how it looks on the outside as much as where I am going to spend countless hours. But inside, yeah, I'm probably going to do a few (reversible) mods.

Gotta think they are similar. The X3 used blind rivets, and if I remember correctly, the mudflaps for the 1 series might have used a screw type rivet. I don't remember if I used a rivet gun on those or not.

Either way, installation was pretty simple.

Mud flaps are simi diff to install better to take wheel off and pick up some extra black
ribits/plugs.

Speaking of mudkips, I mean mudflaps... Is there any way to get the larger European type that is meant to prevent splashing pedestrians, as opposed to the short American type that's meant to prevent spraying the car itself? I didn't order them here, because all they had was the bikini type.

I don't see any part number differences between the mudflaps available for the US 35i and, say, a right hand drive European 25iX.

Unless you are talking about 3rd party mud guards... It looks like eBay UK has a bunch of those...

Woah, that is indeed the best fucking X1 I've seen. Now I wished I've gotten coilovers instead of springs now

My car feels so high looking at that X1 now...

Anyways, here's what I've bought recently:





Wrapped the steering myself the other day. Waiting for the airbag, just ordered today.

Sending the car to the paint shop next week, I'm excited!
