It's not an available option at all actually. U would have to do that on ur own.

I like the front splitter as well but if it's not cheaper then the Vorsteiner one I'm going to go with the latter.

I believe it may be an option for the 2013 model per this article below:

U.S. Pricing announced for 2013 BMW X5 M and 2013 BMW X6 M

Optional equipment:
  • Active Ventilated Seat Package (ZAV) Active Ventilated Seat package no longer includes SA456 and has been re-priced to $900.
  • Full LED Headlights (552) now available as a stand-alone option for $1,900
  • Now, either M light alloy wheel style may be ordered on the either model at no charge (2NT remains standard on X5 M, 2NU remains standard on X6 M).

Other than it sounding really cool, does the LED headlights have an advantage?

Remember when Xenon headlights came and Halogen lights were standard. Xenon were much brighter as compared to halogen and also had the coolness factor in that they were bright white. Same deal now. LED headlights are more bright than Xenons and consume less power. They are the new 'bright headlights' in the market. They are standard on X5 M and X6 M in markets other than US, but $1900 option in US.

BMW on Adaptive LED headlights:

The Adaptive LED headlights in the BMW X6 M illuminate the road in a unique way. Safety and sportiness form an unbeatable team.

Two three-dimensional light rings enclose the central LED modules of the headlights and create the typically sporting appearance of BMW. Dipped and high beam incorporate the LED module and both light rings and shine without the usual ‘dot effect’. Because its temperature is very similar to that of daylight, LED light has a very bright beam, enabling traffic signs to be seen more clearly.

Cornering lights, Adaptive headlights and High Beam Assistant are all integrated into the headlights. Cornering lights turn on automatically when bends are taken slowly. The Adaptive headlights react continuously to movements of the steering wheel and to speed, thus illuminating winding roads perfectly. The High Beam Assistant switches between full and dipped beam according to the traffic, thus easing the load on the driver during the dark. Dipped beam, accent lighting and direction indicators are also implemented with LED technology.

You know it is quite annoying actually that we'll have to pay 2 grand on the headlight option on a 100 grand suv! Knowing that other markets get it for "free" doesn't help the frustration.

I just want to know how bright a headlight can get before an oncoming Honda Civic plows into me because the driver was blinded.

So is it Cornering lights or Adaptive headlights that are working when I have the truck sliding sideways, full opposite lock with my right foot buried?

I didn't realize the wheels were an option on the 2013. I just bought mine a month ago and now the new headlights are out Smh.

As far as price, we get the vehicle for significantly cheaper then any place else so having to pay for the options isn't all that bad IMO. A lot of places have it much worse lol

See details below
So, are these X5M accessories even available in the US?

They don't show up on the BMW North America
