As in the same part #?? Wow. They definitely do have a similar look.

The F10 M5 grille style is the same style (chrome outer ring and black slats) that BMW has used on their 3-series (and others) since their first generation E21 in 1975. It looked more standard and similar to today starting with the E36 in 1990, and of course with the E46 starting in 1998.

To me the F10 M5 grille is a much more common traditional look. It still looks good on our F10 .

Btw, the only reason I know these details is from looking at Wikipedia. Lol.
