@ Sujithnk: The DVD system is meant for Navigation, as Maverick rightly said, and the main purpose it being a DVD System, is that in Europe and also in US, they have the entire US/Europe MAP in one DVD, as most people there keep driving from one country to another by road. So the data comes up to around 2.5 - 3 gb for the entire Europe map.

Is it so ?

thanks
Hey sujith, its not me who said anything about the swap.The thing about the '07 BMW in India is not true, what we are getting is indeed the '08 Model year 5 series, i have even given you the production date of your car.

Regards,
Mav!

Looks hot ...makes even those 18inchers look small !

Do you guys do a buyback of the orignal bumpers in exchange for these?

Is it possible to just get the the lip spoiler or would one need to buy the entire package?

go for the Magnaflow Exhaust Tips... u will have to cut your existing tips a little bit to make them straight, if they are curved downside.

@ MAverick... thats a bloody awesome car u got there! the KIT is lovely! please do put in details as to how much it cost u ..the complete kit.

Are you sure they're 18" wheels? Looks like 17" to me; the tyre profile looks bigger.

@ ID, the entire M kit would cost around 3 lacs! that includes the front and rear bumper along with the spoiler. Also we have a good looking set of alloy wheels with DUnlop SP Sport 245/40 R18 available.. let me know if anyone is interested.Here are a couple of pics,

OH MAVERICK! my bad i missed this wheels!
Just last week i negotiated with the dealer to take back just the tyres and i have ordered for my 17" tyres,,,reaching me on wednesday.

I was contemplating the idea, and had asked the dealer to take back the 17" rft tyres, along with the RIMS, and give me the 530d highline rims - 18" instead, well, before he gave me a reply, i just cancelled that idea, and settled for the 17" for better cusioning for indian roads.

But the wheels u got, are hot! thanks Mav!

Mav, did you guys paint those rims on the X5 or powdercoat them to black?

I have been thinking about getting my rims painted to a hypersilver finish similar to the AC schnitzer or M5 166m rim's color.
How do you think they would look on the 525d radial spoke 244 rims? Also what would this approx cost?

P.S: Just noticed that the 320d has its exhaust tip facing straight up, do all 320d have it this way? Most german diesel including the 5 and E have it facing downwards
