What I meant is that your diffuser designed for square 550i tail pipes, there is a similar diffuser style but for M5 tail pipes. Both diffusers have the same aggressive style with fins, but the M5 one have larger openings in the corners to fit round tail pipes better than 550i style (really makes the difference if you go with larger dia. tail pipes like 3.5"+). So that's why I was wondering why you went with 550i style.

Oh I see what you mean. I actually just didn't think about it back then. Good point.

The rear spoiler was already installed by the previous owner when I bought the car. So I can't tell which one it is, sorry. However, it is an aftermarket product.

Love your mods.

Can you share sources and a little on process to mod those side vents?

The existing side vents are my least favorite feature on my 550 next to the hexagonal exhaust tips.

Many thanks in advance.

Cheers.

The side vents are from SSDD Motorsport (UK), here:

The front fenders are OEM M5 fenders, so I didn't have to mod the vents or holes.

Part numbers are:
51138057224 / Right
51138057229 / Left

There is no OEM part with black grille frame, so I vinyl wrapped the frame in shiny black.

Be also noted that the night vision camera and its fastening system has been changed during time. I had to make some modding to get my 2010 camera fit on these new grilles.

Looks like I missed out on this thread. Your car looks awesome, and I really like the 550i instead of M5 on the side grills.
