Bill,

Time to buy the tools to make life easier!

I got a few more years to retirement, hope to be driving and wrenching the stable until then.

My feeling on the CDV is if it's not broke why fix it. I have no issue shifting from 1st to 2nd, and chirping the tires isn't a big deal for me. I did buy the hollow valve from zeckhausen many years...

I put Koni yellow in front at 90K, still have original in back at 135K. Not optimum I'm sure, but drives fine. I may replace rears once I get my lift installed, which is not happening too quickly. ...

The part shown in OP is mainly for people that buy M5 OEM, or aftermarket M5 bumpers. The M-Sport bumper used on 2003 540s has the brake ducts included. M5s do not have the ducts I believe.
