need your advise on M conversion

My dealer just called me and offered me an awesome deal. My car was in for service on Monday and a customer wanted to buy it! The guys love the way my 5 looks like with the vorsteiner parts and all.

He his offering me an amazing deal on a 550i packed with all options possible beside the M sport pack.

Should I go ahead with the transaction and do a conversion M sport pack ? Or I should just order a 550 with a M sport pack ? I don't know how much does it cost to convert the car from standard to M pack. It would be nice to move to M5 conversion but then I need to buy new fenders on top of it... so definitely too expensive.

So if anyone did a M conversion and can share your experience, I would appreciate

Here a picture of my current car

So youre planning to trade up from a 528i to a new 550i? and take the immediate loss of youre new car, is your car a lease, did you buy straight out or finance it? Seems like a big difference in price, or take a big loss, and dealers usually dont do a thing unless they are making a profit somehow, ordering a maxed out new 550i will cost you over $70 grand, I love my 550i regular sport with a few mod's, so if you were financing I would go with the option that the payment stayed within your budget. Your gasoline bill, property taxes, and insurance definatly is going to change a lot too. If you are happy with the speed you already have, If it were me, I wouldnt change a thing and stay where youre at, your car looks good and the body style will be around for a good while, so it will always look like the new model.

There is a lost on my car but what I am saving on the 550 is huge! They had the car on the lot for over 200 days and the car need to leave so they are selling below cost , 20K below sticker price.

Basically I am loosing all my mods on the 528 but it doesn't equate to 20K.

JohhnyF10 can't help much with the M conversion other than it is straight forward in terms of body parts (you'd need the rear diffuser and pieces and also front bumper and fog assemblies) so it shouldn't be too expensive. Make him throw in the M sport package as part of the deal.

But I must ask..what wheels are those on your car? They're nice...would love to see a front/oblique view!

M Sport bumpers are a retrofit that BMW sells. It's not terribly expensive. I'd ask them to throw it in. M5 conversion would be a lot more expensive and your car isn't an M5 so you shouldn't do it anyways.

Does the car have any sport package? Are the window trims chrome or shadow line? The only things you'd be missing are the seats, steering wheel, and footrest pedal but the last 2 can be retrofitted.

Enjoy! Btw I am selling them, or I should say giving them away!
