I would like to solicit anybody's comment how best to deal with this and his/her advice to best conceal this seam making it less obvious especially from those who have had clear bra installed on their M5's front bumper. I have included a closeup and a wide shot of the seam which seem to be the first thing that somebody who looks at the front of the car immediately notices.
Don't have a "stretch"/cut in this area.
My clear bra was put using a custom cut (on the car) kit
Your installer likely used a pre-cut kit which may well have a cut in the front
