I don't think the issue should be whether it is an M5. This thread was made for fake M5's. This guy has not badged it as an M5, and it doesn't look like he's trying to pass it off as one. An M5 looks better than a standard e39 (as has been discussed in this thread a number of times) and people will always slap the bumpers on. I think the real issue is when the badge is attached to the car. In my opinion, no badge, no problem. Clean looking e39.
I called a guy an indian giver. He was offended, so I had to take it back.
