Competition Package compatible with 2012-2013 M5?

Does anyone know perhaps if any or all parts of competition package will be retrofittable to "normal" M5?

How could anybody know this when BMW hasn't even officially announced that there will in fact be a competition package?! The rumors at this point are out of control due to that magazine.

Any idea if Mercedes's performance package is compatible with non-performance package cars?

Immature.


OP- Like the M3, you can fit the competition package on base M3's. (springs, wheels, exhaust) I'm sure they will be interchangeable with the M5.

Or not so interchangable:

Updated Steering
Updated Suspension
Increased Speed Limiter

Ever heard of "Sense of humor is a sign of intelligence" saying?

@RPiM5
True, though I'm more interested in improvements to steering and brakes overheating rather quickly for my driving.
