I respect the time, cost, and effort that went into this. And the end result looks good. But as an owner of the F10 M5 this is insulting to me.

The car is F10 523i and it's USD 100k.

Here it's about ~ USD 300k for a brand new F10 M5

Why is this insulting?

He probably spent about the same money what you've payed for a "real" M5 in the U.S....

You're really lucky in the US regarding prices for BMWs. Check out price lists in Europe or other countries....

Great Mod linhperfume !

Why? Do you really need to ask this question? Because it's not the M5! It's a 528/530 disguised as the M5. Those who see it will be deceived into thinking it's the real thing when it's not.

It's not about the money - it's about it being fake. He should've bought the M Sport Package. That is an accessory designed for the F10 non-M5. What he did was diminish the value of the M brand by putting lipstick on a pig.

And yes, I know that BMW cars are expensive around the world. I used to live in Europe. But I earned enough money to drive whatever I wanted in both the UK and Germany, and didn't need to resort to making my car something it wasn't.
