Thanks. In my view, given the distinct nature of the front of the M5, it's going to appear that way to some people. I know you're not wanting to and I totally believe you, but when you install M5-specific additions on to your car, you can't blame people for thinking that you might be.

If it weren't M5 specific I don't think it would be as big of a deal. Even BMW kept the M Sport bumper on the M550dx, even though it's a factory M-badged car.
