M stripes all over.

I saw this M5 as I was shopping around downtown Montreal today. It's from BMW Laval. M stripes all over the car: front, back, and sides.

Overkill in my opinion.

What do you think?

Looks pretty stupid, like they started the stripe and then changed their mind or ran out of money.

Compared to the Jeff Koons BMW, this is understated.

I wouldn't mind if it also covered the hood and dropped the text.
It brings back memory of a white Opel Manta 400 I used to drive. Either you knew what the huge yellow chevrons meant[*], or you didn't.
[*]: Frequent repairs and similar gas mileage to USS Endeavour, that's what it meant.

Why aren't the stripes on the hood? That's just weird.

looking at the plate you can see it privately owned. company cars start with FF plates in quebec. plus you will never get an M car as a loner here... you would be lucky if you get an actual BMW.

+1
In addition, if it was a test drive car, then the plate would have started with an X followed by 5 numbers.

Front and rear not bad. I would use a much more subtle M on the sides though...
