Oooohhhh! I REALLY like that front splitter and side diffusers. Sides look very similar to the Vorsteiner M6. Vorsteiner is coming out with theirs for the F10 M5 in April. I hopefully will be the first car with the kit.

I'm not really feeling it. Maybe because the car is not lowered. Might look better with a drops and some nice wheels.

I like the minimalist look of this front spoiler, but have always had a question about the gap in the front bumper cover between the lowest portions of the cover under the intakes for the side radiators. There is the horizontally mounted radiator in front of and below the main engine coolant radiator. It has no fan and will need airflow to give adequate cooling. Does the bodywork gap somehow direct air into or across the cooling surface to give it the functionality it needs? Will a spoiler added into the bodywork gap impede that airflow to the radiator?

I'm not a fan of mods that doesn't adds to original styling or technology. The front lip spoiler is a nice touch.

Any prices?

Perhaps I have a different opinion/outlook on this but everytime I see an M5 with any skirt package it looks weird and out of place to me. The E9x M3 looked great with all different kinds of front lips and rear diffusers, but somehow it just doesn't work on the M5. If I end up buying an M5, I will buy 20/21" wheels, lower it and thats it. No extra lips and/or diffusers.

The pics of the rear diffuser show that the weave is uneven and the fitment is terrible. That may be okay on a non M E9x, but not on this car. Mods should be tasteful and look factory. I'm sure the front splitter is the same fitment. Garbage IMO, and like posted above- rike seriousry rice!

Too many fins on the rear diffuser, but the rest of the kit looks nice and simple.
