Shameful if this is true.
well Sahil i knew that they had swapped them from the dealership itself and i bargained and got a further 1 lakh reduction from their final offer. i was under the impression that the 18 inch with rft would spoil the ride and wasnt very keen in getting them.

You can go for an aftermarket replica which would have proper space for the fog lamps. There are hundreds of good quality ones on eBay, google and the installation looks quite straightforward.

The normal 5 series has a very soft looking front bottom while the m5 has a very muscular one. Do give it a thought! I'm sure you would love it
Plus they come quite cheap so if you don't like it then just take it off and resell.

Also looking forward to your ownership experience till now. How many kms have you covered by now?

Edit: This looks quite good quality: http://www.raceonusa.com/index.php/e...9-m5-look.html
