This M Coupe was posted on ls1tech.com by fok, of Warwick, England. Being a UK M Coupe, it originally was fitted with an S50. It  has had an LS1 engine from a Corvette C5, and a slew of other GM vehicles from the era, crammed under the hood. There aren’t many details posted about the Coupe, other than it has “brake, suspension, and chassis mods” to go along with the added power of the LS1. You can also see custom wheels, and aftermarket exhaust. I’m not 100% certain, but it looks like in the high reslolution photos, that the center section of the dash is Estoril Blue. Let me know if you think differently.

Edit: Just found more details about this Coupe on Bimmerforums.com.
