330I ZHP - 2012 X5///M build thread

I have had a few people ask me to prepare and keep up with a build thread for my X5. Here you go:



I purchased the vehicle in December 2012 and it is Carbon Black and loaded with every option except the rear DVD video system.



When new:







Before I even rcvd the vehicle - I had parts showing up























Painting all of the reflectors and front grills body color:











Eisenmann rear section













HRE's mounted and ready to be installed (was waiting at that point to install the COs)













My two children

I cut the trailer hitch assembly and turned it 45deg so that I would not have to cut the rear bumper/diffuser









OEM LED wiring harness from Germany via Robolop in Belguim




A little CF touch







Adding the 6 disc DVD player




I have added this - but don't have any pics

Damn you must sh!t out money. Haven't seen to many modded x5m out there, this one is definitely a win. You plan on doing any performance mods?
