This is more of a muffler bypass than muffler delete. Same result, except you can switch back and forth.

The E60 M5 was never meant to be a 6SPD from what I recall. BMW finally gave in to consumer demand and made than an option I think a year or so in to the production cycle. Either way your comment doesn't make sense. The current F10 550i doesn't offer a manual at all. It is 8-speed auto only. Only option is if you want flappy-paddles with your wheel or not.

I doubt they would offer the F10 M5 with a manual at launch either. They might point three-pedal lovers to their 1M instead and keep the M5 exclusively with their 7-speed DCT gearbox.
