Some pics of the TWINS!

Would be nice to have a spare M5! I'm aware that a member here does have a spare M5!

The story here is that I brought home another M5 for a test drive and PPI for a fellow m5board.com member looking for an M5... He did get the beast he was looking for but not this one...

Since I had another M5 might as well take pics...

Clear corner markers look nice. Definitly an improvement when put side by side.

Are the foglights the same between the two beasts?
Different grills?
Different heights? The Dealer marked one looks lower (in front)...

Same foglights but HOEN bulbs on my M5.

Yes different grills.

Different heights caused by driveway...

Petrol Mica is the one on the left with the clear corners and shadow chrome grills.

Not really the perfect lighting condition to show the color shades...

What's better than an M5?

Two of them of course.
