I wanted to do the exact same thing to my m sport but silver, even the taillights did m style do the conversion? this is where I wanted to do mine

But you should have got the X5M wings with the intakes and X6 headlights

Wow, looks great! Congrads, I believe you are the first one.
1. Can you please list all part you ordered, I'm more interested in small stuff like bumper bracket etc.
2. Show us your exhaust modification.
3. Can you also post more pictures of those LED taillights?
4. Why no X6 headlights?

Thanks for the compliments ...

1) I had the conversion done by M Style - BMW and Mini Specialists - ask for Paul Emmerson and say I referred you ... don't know all the small elements but full elements:
- Bumpers front and rear
- Side skirts if your model not already M Sport
- Wheel arches

2) Exhaust removal of back box and new X5M matching pipes and stainless pipes through to mid box

3) Will take some ... but were off ebay ....

4) Did consider the lights as love the more agressive look and as I needed new wings anyway did really want to put X5M wings on and lights but wings more expensive and lights are ludicrous .... around 1800 from memory ...

Do you know if X6 and X5 headlights share the same socket? Are they direct swap as far as wiring and mounting brackets?

very nice! looks good....this gotta be the first X5M conversion I have seen, well done

i'd change the taillights to LCI LED and perhaps a pair OEM performance gloss black grills?

Stephen - I love it

I have a question - I have the Msport package 5.0 and would like to change only the front bumper to the M one. Any idea what I need to change?

From your post I gather I DO NOT

1) need to change headlights (phew!)


What do I need in addition to the bumper? In looking at the msport plastic extenders around the wheel wells in the front - they are different than the M ones

Help!

Alex
