BMW 1 series coupe with 1M body conversion, E92 M3 engine (4.0 V8) and running gear. It's even had the engine swap registered with DVLA:

I would love a go in this.

For those who can't access eBay at work:





The pictures are a bit crap, and it really doesn't suit the M3 Competition Pack wheels, but I like it a lot.
Think I'd prefer the same transplant in a 2-series coupé though...

Also, no bucket seats?!

Crikey, that's a great bit of kit. I'd put some other seats in and that's about it.

Me too. The colour’s awful, but it kind of keeps it under the radar a bit.

Which one did you see the green one or the yellow one. They both look awful.

If it’s the same car it hasn’t improved with age. Cheap tat thrown on poorly by chavs

I'd just put a carpet, headlining and decent seats in it and possibly tweak it to 300 brake? wink

You and I both. For anyone of my gen (DOB 77, so late 30's early 40's) they were god on the modding/ Max Power scene. Passe, but worthy of enthusiasm.

They certainly were, the spit rims they use are one of my favourite alloy wheel. I remember when they used to have a shop in the Trafford Centre, I.used to lust after the cars they had on display there.

Also there is a fella on here with a stunning blue Dimma 205.
