When the 2002 BMW X5 4.6is was delivered, I stood there, looking at its tires. The sidewalls were as low as an elephant's toe. Up front were 275/40R20s, which looked massive.

Trims Explained

When talking about cars, “trims” is a way of differentiating between different versions of the same model. Typically, most start with a no-frills, or “base” trim, and as features are added, or a different engine, drivetrain (gas vs. hybrid, for example) or transmission are included, trim names change and prices go up.
