I wouldn't have called it a 1M if I were gpower but I guess most people will belive it....
The headliner and sunroof are the most blatant giveaways.

Garage List
The build is impressive but G-Power's press-release is a blatant mis-representation of the donor car.

It is clearly NOT a 1M donor. As others have mentioned, no 1Ms were produced with a sunroof so that should settle the issue.

The fact that G-Power is advertising this as a 1M is pretty unethical, especially if they end up charging a premium based on that mis-representation. They should be up-front and honestly state that this is a 135/128 conversion to a 1M bodykit with M3 drivetrain.

If it doesn't have a 1M VIN, it is not a 1M.

Below is an E46 M3 with the M5 V10 engine. Were they referring to this monster ?



Pretty wild sound when the valve is open:
