Just came across this very special M5:confused3

Under the safety aspect the rollover cage is okay, but what's up with these fenders they just seem to be so out of place:eek7:

WTF?!?! If the wider fenders were actually accompanied by matching front and rear bumpers and wider wheels, then maybe it would be ok. But, this is a hot mess.

agree,, missing center caps tells that the vehicle being put back to stock in a very bad way for a quick sale

I'm grasping the threads of my memory for anything I've seen that comes close to being as repulsive as this.


I just have to ask: "Why?"

I'm sure this made sense at some point to someone. Must have had some different bumpers too. (At least I hope.)

Would love to see a picture from before.

The issue with wide body kits. Can swap the stock front/rear bumpers back but most kits come with small attachments for the fenders and those require that you cut your original fenders killing your ability to return to stock. The one issue that's keeping me from still eyeballing the Lumma kit.

That cage doesn't look like the car was built for anything serious.

BTW, what's up with the chrome trim around the windows? M's don't come with that.

If it weren't for the interior shots and other details, I would have said it was a fake...

I believe in Europe the chrome trim around the windows was an option on the M5 yawnnnn

The car was obviously being tracked, and someone needed clearance for bigger/wider wheels and tires. Seems simple enough.
