Yeah no the glass is definitely over-kill and really only needed if you live in a serious crime plagued area or are somebody important... if those were the cases you probably wouldn't be buying an X2 anyhow so we're in the clear for that lol

Took at look at what Hamann has available for the X4 and I'd be interested in a few pieces if they develop something similar for the X2. Their body mods aren't as dramatic as Vorsteiner and adds to the flow of the vehicle.

Ultimately for me an Alpina version would do it.
If they can make a 3-series Alpina then odds are the X2 will get the same treatment especially on a global scale.

Does Alpina only add on exterior pieces or do they tune the engine to bump up the vehicle's performance? Their body are very subtle, but enough to make the appearance more powerful.

Alpina definitely does a lot of engine upgrading, it's quite amazing to be honest. Here's a link to their site specifically in the engine section

The smallest they have are 6 cylinders and I doubt that'll be put into a X2, but that bodes well for future application from the company if they decide to take on the X2.

doubt it too especially during a time when cylinders are getting chopped all for fuel economy gains. plus this is a platform where they can get away with 4 cyls regardless of the trim

For sure. With the X2 size, anything more than a 4 cylinder would be overkill in my opinion. However... the inner me that would be craving for that bigger straight 6 turbo or something does claw around once in a while.

The most we can expect from Alpina is a tune or something small like that, and only if they see a large enough pool of potential buyers. So it'll depend on how many X2 BMW sells. We're expecting to see a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine in the X2, not sure how much they can do with that.
