I'd like to get a "real" tamper for my X5.  I measured the current tamper, and it came out to 57mm, but I was using measuring tape, and I can't be sure it's perfect.

Searching online reveals that people have tampers from 56-58mm.  Did anyone here get a tamper for their X5?  If so, what size did you find works best?

Thanks!

My friend as a FF...X1 or X5, I believe.  She purchased a really nice 58mm tamper but it's too big, just barely.  I think you need a 57mm.

Great looking machine, BTW!  What color is yours?  Her's is robin's egg blue.

57mm is the size you need.
