KW V3 for 550i

Does anyone know if a set of KW V3 coilovers off a 550i will work on a M5? Might sound like a dumb question but I honestly don't know. Thanks for any inputs.

I checked KW's site and compared a 2008 550 with a 2008 M5 and they have different part numbers for the KW V3s so I'm pretty sure they won't fit.
