Blacked out 2010 BMW X5 M

The other M twin. Basically the big brother to the M3 below. For 2010, BMW finally makes an "M" version of the X5. This one got the same blacked out treatment as the M3 it shares a garage with. All the lenses were tinted and the chrome grilles and side vents were painted matte black. The stock 20" M wheels got a matte black powdercoat finish to match.

The "Before" photos for comparison.

I don't usually like showing "in process" pics, but it's amazing what you have to do to get the headlights off of one of these things.

This matte finish powdercoat is really a nice alternative to gloss.
