DTM exhaust tips: Tacky?

What do you guys think of DTM exhaust tips on the M5? Too much?

I am considering the Eisenman DTM exhaust but I am not sure if that looks a little tacky for the sophisticated beast.

The 83mm tips look great too.

I am not sure which ones I prefer.

See these links for pics:

Here are the 83mm tips:

I personally dislike the DTM tips on the M5. The style does not match the rest of the car's styling cues.

I love the DTM! Let me know what you decide because I might be right behind you Kelleners backed out because something about the US dollar not being worth much anymore!

Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft - German Touring-Car Championship, the race series where the style originated.

Frankly, I think the DTM tips are exactly what the E46 M3 needs, its stock four little tubes poking out of little slots is underwhelming.

I don't much like that style on the M5. I don't even think I'll go for the 83mm tips, I've seen the 76mm tubes and think it's perfect.

I don't like the upturned look. I like the stock look of four, polished, round, straight pipes. If the 83mm are not upturned, go for it.

I had trouble with this link, but I think this is the same one:

I don't understand the styling. It seems like it would collect water, though it might allow better wheelies.
