When the X2 first launched, fren mentioned it looked like a Scirocco...even though i owned one, i couldnt see it.

But now i totally see it...the rear 3/4 and rear is so similar to a VW Scirocco

+1. Do a M version 4 cylinder engine bmw. Or better yet, tap into Audi's 5 cylinder game. MB is getting in on the in-line 6 territory again so why not explore some new options besides traditional hybrids. The X2 could be a great platform to test out new shits

I will try to contact M-Design to see all mods.

I am looking for M35i - probably black - and will consider buying an additional set of wider rims/tyres in all-black.
This is most likely on air suspension but yeah, this car has its potential aesthetically.

Somehow the more I look at these pics, the more I feel like this body design "should've" "could've" been the new 1 series to compete with the AMG A45 and RS3.

I like the X2 the way it sits from the factory, but I must admit that this one is very sharp. Only knock is the cheesy X2 lettering checkering the back liftgate.

needs a bigger tires and possibly a smaller wheel. something is off with the fitment and it just doesn't look right. also would love to see this with normal paint.

I definitely don't like the broken suspension or mirrored look, but my takeaways from this are as follows:

Black Kidney Grilles definitely improve the look.

The front, rear and side accents being gloss black rather than the questionable frozen silver definitely improves the look.

The wheel arches being in the same color as the body vs the frozen silver really improves the look.

With those minimal changes, the stock version would look more cohesive, meaner, and less jarring.

Unrelated rant: what were they thinking not having roof rack mounting points? They would have sold a good number of these to younger mountain bikers but they missed the mark.

"They" have, you just have to order. Better looking without.
