Awesome build!

Do they make 20" all season tires?

Or will you be using the stock wheels in the winter months?

I doubt those PS4S will hold up in the snow, even with xdrive.

I've done all the same on my Estoril Blue M Sport F31! Except for the wheels, I like stock wheels for some reason.

Thoughts on the M Performance upper rear spoiler? Part #51192298300

Why doesn't BMW just come out with an M3 Touring with M xDrive?



The new X4 is sweet but it is a little heavier then I'm used to.

I'd settle for a 340 F31 being available in the USA

Definitely one of the cleanest wagons I have ever seen! Tastefully done OP!
Excellent choice of mods. Makes me want to get one...

Wow.. very nice !
That has a nice stance for a wagon. The wheels go perfect with paint colour.
Good luck with the rest of the mods.

I think Ill be moving back out west eventually! The downgrade in power is pretty painful but the DINAN bits help out.

I have the same set of FF04s in my garage.

why did you go with a 275/30 on the rear? any rubbing?

HRE says go 265, Modbargins says go 275 which I would prefer as it matches the 235 much better diameter wise.....

I have a 20mm drop from standard x-drive

Oh nice, I was under the impression they didn't make many winter tires over 18 inches. Glad to hear there are larger options available.
