I think they stick out same as OEM. Like Mac said, yours look to be pushed in further, but I do like how it looks!

I'll get more pictures from different angles. I still have to play around and tweak the left side muffler.

Btw, is everybody seeing pictures that I posted properly?

Glad to see you're making the most of your M5 experience in Germany. You will have to take the car back to Italy at some point: driving through the Dolomites and Alps (Stelvio, Furka, and many other passes) was a truly amazing experience in the M5!

Really enjoying this read - thanks!

Thank you! Have you done that trip yourself? Sounds like a lifetime experience.
It's definitely on my bucket list, that and the Transfagarasan highway in Romania. I was hoping to buy the M5 in Italy and drive it back to Germany, but Italy doesn't have export plates like Germany does so transport on a truck was the only option.


I realize I haven't shared any pictures of my old beast. 05/2000 Le Mans blue on Silverstone - my favorite M5 combo. It had a bit over 100k miles when I sold it.

The option that I miss the most is double glazed windows/comfort windshield - the sound insulation was that much better. Titan trim was nice as well.























And my Californian mile munchers.

Toledo blue '02 530iA Sport - beauty that took me all over Cali and never let me down.

Yes '01 189K TiAg but not as nearly in good condition as yours. She's rough on the outside but the motor has all it's preventative maintenance to my knowledge and starts up without hesitation, no leaks from what I see.

Yup! Lived in the UK for a few years with many trips to the continent (and the 'ring of course!) My only regret is not having a muffler delete or an aftermarket exhaust for all those amazing Swiss tunnels
