For the owner of this BMW X5 M, the need to further modify the luxury truck to his personal needs is obvious in this tuning project. Instead of going with a full-fledged aero kit, the owner opted for a set of aftermarket forged wheels. Made by HRE Wheels, these HRE P103 wheels in Satin Black bring a perfect subtle accentuating touch to this vehicle. Sized twenty-one inches, front and rear, they are a perfect performance/visual upgrade for this vehicle.
The build was completed by a company called Baan Velgen who took care of the installation procedure. Additionally, the tuning company added an Akrapovic titanium exhaust system, giving this BMW X5 M a throatier sound and improved performance. The BMW X5 M is a perfect mixture of space and daily utility combined with the M touches which have made famous BMW’s sports division. Its 4.4 liter V8 TwinTurbo engine helps the heavy SUV sprint from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 4.2 seconds.
