E61 w/ F82 M4 Rear Bumper

Hi All,
My 1st post on 5Post...
I have an 08' E61 with an F82 M4 front bumper and thought I'd do the same M4 theme in back. Here's the Mock up...

I'd go straight pipe as the M4 muffler wont fit due to the spare tire compartment placement. I cant remove the spare tire compartment because it houses my air tank and compressor...I'm bagged as well.

Anyway...thoughts on the look of this idea?

I've typically not been a fan of one cars bodywork being on another car, but this actually looks good.

Are the F82 bumpers a direct fit, or would brackets need to be reloctaed for this to work?

I am looking at the problem from the other direction. The M4 has a steel rear bumper and I'm wondering if I can put an e60 aluminum front bumper on the back of my M4 race car. Are the cars about the same width?
