It's still more than just a BMW-modded 5 series! It drives differently and this is the most important factor. Have you ever driven an M car? It's hard to tell why people do M5 conversions. Most likely to pretend like this is a real M5 and not because owner likes the way it looks. I'm with M5 owners on this one unless the M5 badges removed.
