New look for under $90.00

Tell me what you think.. it was a lot of work but i think it turned out well. Better than 1400 for new wheels and 300 for new lights.

To each his own, but i agree that it needs contrast.

I think it would look better i you get rid of the rest of the silver trim, like the window trim and kidneys. Go full blackout.
I would as well get rid of all badging except for the roundels.

Your car sits really high off the ground...The wheel gap is not so great

Thats because he has the BMW 4x4 lift kit suspension system. The XI on 17's really does sit a little high doesnt it?

I don't think it's much of the XI and 17s...More like he doesn't have a sport package (suspension)

Xi's dont come with sports suspensions. XI only had 1 suspension as far as I am aware.

I just think if your gonna black on that, then to go black on the rest of the car.

Alfred's car gets by with the black rims because he has the chrome lip to match the window trim. Just my opinion though. To each their own.

But yea, the XI is just high, I mean I get why they did it (ground clearance) but it is noticeable, but still not as bad as LOTS of other cars on the road.

I said nothing about his mods . All I said was his car sat too high off the ground, which is my honest opinion.

IMO black rims r OK and would look better if ur car was lowered a bit

u could've left ur tails the way it was cuz now u look like a ricer

I painted my rims too using the DIY and threw snows on them

Tail lights dont look good but rims are not bad. I say black all around other then the tail lights

I think it will look alright once you get the rest of it done. As for trim, you can wrap it but I have no idea how to do that. Im sure there is something in the DIY forum.
