It's for sure that the E61 M5 is going to have chromed exhausts as well, so that can't be be the final solution.

But I guess we won't know for sure. THIS particular car on the picture was neither an E61 M5 nor an E61 M sport...
That is indeed an E61 M5, the front spoiler isn't pasted on looking and there aren't fog lamps like on the E61 M Sport and the wheels are different slightly (the M5 wheels are deeper in the middle and wider for the fronts, rears are the same as 7er rears). Note also that the M3 exhaust isn't chromed either, they usually add those touches only on the production models, not the prototypes.

For comparison purposes, this is the M Sport front bumper-

M5 Front Spoiler (note no line where the plastic was taped on and no fog lamps, just air ducts)-
