Since I'm not familiar with the new 5, can someone tell me which body panels on the M5 are shared with the standard 5? I'd assume, and it certainly looks like the front and rear bumpers and quarter panels are different.

Only things different are the front and rear bumpers and sides skirts and mirrors. quater panels and front fenders remain the same, maybe a slight slight lift on the front fender thats all.

It will probably more likely be shown at the Shanghai Autoshow which is around the same time. NY will probably have the North American debut of the 6er.

They never took the E60 Concept to NY either.

I'm guessing the front quarter panels will have the customary gills though. I sure would like to see flared fenders and hood hump like the M3 though. I'm guessing that goes over better with the M3 crowd than the M5 crowd.
