I am trying to convert the front bumper and the rear apron on my 97' 528i to M5 Look. I saw a body kit on ebay which does exactly that. Here is the link:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...item=7907361817

Is there any reason why I should not buy this? Any other body kit recommendations are very much appreciated! I am currently lookin at AC Schnitzer, Racing Dynamics and Hamann.

First off, if no one has welcomed you yet. Hope you stay around


Please, dont make a fake M5! Personally I think that M5 kit looks pretty sweet, but there are real M5's everywhere, it is nothing special. It is all a matter of opinion, I personally really like the Hamann kit and would choose that over the others and especially if money was no object. I dont know prices but it has got to be expensive, from what I have seen in Bavarian Autosports (bavauto.com) the G-power kits look pretty nice too.

Have you considered that you'll need to paint the new parts?

powerm does have a good point, but, what if your car already has all the M5 goodies on there when you bought it?
