First of all, I hope this is not a repost. Lmk if it is.

I just saw these pics and I thought... hmm this car actually looks proper when modded. It doesn't even need body kit.

I fully agree! This is completely a different animal from what I saw at dealer.

Apart from - Hole In the Head- lowering, which just convinces me to lower "my" X2 with H&R - as my X4.

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.

M-Design is a no-go. No hit on the net.

Problem is M-Design is cheating with no suspension travel. With reasonable travel, it is possibel to lower about 2", which is OK, but not enough to compete with A45 and RS3. But, probably, SQ4 and upcoming GLA 35.

My alternatives are SQ 4 or MB-AMG GLA 35 (both out next year).

New Q3, recently introduced, makes SQ4 unlikely.

Price on current MB-AMG GLA 45, makes GLA 35 out of (sensible) reach.

Eww. If you want a low car, buy a 1 series.. if you're in the US I guess you're SOL though . Don't buy an SAV and then ruin the suspension.

It's cool. Demonic front fascia. Facets like a gemstone. Don't hate it just because it's
ugly in its own special way. Besides 5 doors is
Where it's at these days if not noticed.

If it wasn't chrome wrapped people would be praising it. Looks better but still a junk Bmw that should have just been a 1er 4dr hatch to start.

A slammed SAV that looks dope. Brings new meaning to the term "crossover". Makes me want to consider a chrome wrap on my car but may look a little bit much on an F30.

As close as you will get in the US with a 2.0 l motor? I'd just buy a GTI and be done with it.

Captain Phasma? I think the chrome helps the lines! Certainly interesting way to spend your cash!
