First came a WK, then a 4.8i X5, and now....

Back to a WK....well actually a WK2. Currently en-route from an Ohio dealership, to my selling dealership in Baltimore is a:

Mineral Gray, Black int., Limited, V8, 20", and 730N RHR.

It took me a long time finding the right car, sourcing it from anywhere in the US, with the right specs, and at the price I wanted to pay. I'm over budget (originally was buying a 09' WK Limited for 26K,) but I'm really looking forward to it. While I terribly miss my X5, the risk-reward is a substational purchase price savings, similar off-the-line performance (twisties will not be the same,) and very similar styling.

I look forward to sharing my WK2 with all of you fine folks, and learning more about some subtle modding. First plans I see now are the Magnaflow exhaust (or at-least replacing single muffler with dual magna's,) cleaner and brighter DRL and Fog's, Rear Fog light kit, debadging and possibly dechroming and re-paint body color (like a M-Sport X5...)

Take care all...

That is a great rookie post. We will be happy to pass on the mod bug. You may be surprised in the turns as well. Add Bwoody Sway Links to your list. Congrats and enjoy.

Here was the progression of my X5....and I look forward to making my WK2 a little more personal as well...

As new...then added tint....then added aero pack, running boards and refinished wheels in gunmetal....added magnaflows (no pic.)...then made the cover of BMW magazine...

bselman,
nice, where in baltimore?

If you go the route of BWoody links and Short Ram, don't pay the shipping, he is located in Edgewood, 20-miles up I-95 from B'more.
