Your memory was correct: after trying and testing a few possibilities, it was the Green/Yellow wire in the mirror harness that did the trick. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience....

The rear springs are one coil larger/longer on the M5 than a 540; the M springs will jack up the rear of a 540 and look/handle like crap.
