You ALL should see TVCam550 car in person...a "Frozen" graphite that just looks too rich. Now with the custom exhaust, I can only imagine it sounds tasty too. A little more sound? Maybe cable tie...

What's wrong with this picture (hint: MPG)

My 550i was in for service. Had a 428i grand coupe loaner for almost a week. Didn't really drive it too far, maybe 85 miles mixed city highway. Replenished the gas with $10 just to bring it back...

Pretty close

Yes, the M5 mufflers don't "bolt on" or even "slip on" and connect with clamps. But, if you're only doing axle back, your muffler guy is going to cut off your stock 550i muffler about and fabricate...
