This M Coupe was posted on flickr.com by nakhon100. This Coupe appears to be prepped for the track, with a number of mods suited for that type of use. Mods include: BMW OE Aero front bumper and side skirts, louvers cut into the stock hood, hood pins, black painted horizontal M Grille trim, blacked out roof, Hypersilver Roadstars with gunmetal painted centers wrapped with what looks like track rubber, racing seats, and aftermarket suspension. I’m not completely certain about the color, or engine of this Coupe. It looks like Steel Gray, but in some aspects, it looks a bit lighter than SG. It could just be the lighting, though. A sliver of the dash center can be seen, which looks Gray to me, making the interior Gray/Black. IF this is a Steel Gray M Coupe, it should have an S54 under the hood, but there is certainly a possibility that it is an S50 and the Coupe has been  repainted, or it is a BMW Individual. On a side note, I didn’t realize how tall and deep the Aero side skirts are, nor how “angular” they are.

    I can add some info about this car as it’s owned by a friend of mine here in Sweden.

    No, it’s not an original Steel Gray car. It was resprayed by the previous owner, came in Dakar yellow from the factory (the car is also on this site in the original colour), who also fitted a carbon roof and the Aero front and side skirts.

    Under the hood this Z3M has a tweeked S50B32 with aftermarket headers and custom built exhaust.
    The hood itself is actually also carbonfibre and the suspension is from KW.

    As the owner primarily, almost only, uses the car for trackdays a six point cage is fitted along with Recaro seats and six point harneses.
