M-Sport bumper vs. stock 550 bumper

I see a lot of ads for exhaust systems that say they are for the "M-Sport rear bumper" only. What is the major difference between a stock 550 rear bumper and the M-Sport rear bumper? The 550 bumper supports a "dual exhaust" on each side.

My question really is... will a muffler spec'ed for an M-Sport bumper fix on a 550? I assume I will have to have some welding done, etc., to attach the new muffler to the cut-off point of the stock system, but will the rear hangers line up?

This is the type of thing I'm looking at:

I'm not making any guarantees here, but they probably checked the fit with the M-Sport bumper only. It may fit under the standard bumper but they don't want somebody to buy it and return it saying it doesn't fit.

In the worst case you'll need to buy an M-sport bumper.

I just checked the listing and it said 550 and 535. It definitely won't fit the 535 standard bumper (or M-sport for that matter) without modifications...
