The biggest gripe you can have with this is it didn't start out as an M Sport and there's MANY car on here that didn't but have kits fitted etc, and the 330d bit in the blurb. That could be an easy typo to make.
The difference is that this guy is not being honest about the car. He is claiming it to be an M Sport when it most probably is not.

If he stated clearly within the advert that it was an SE upgraded to M Sport spec (as fas as was possible) then I would have no problem with it. Or if there's some other plausible explanation as to why the dubious interior that would be OK.

Instead he's claiming it to be an M Sport when that fact is highly questionable given that there are M Sport items that are clearly missing from the car. This raises significant questions as to what the history of the of the car is - that's why its dodgy.

Mega's car is just modified and he's completely open about wat has been done to the car. It may not be to everyone's taste but it's not dodgy because the car's provenance is very clear.

I agree with the double standards issue.

When someone posts a pic of their blacked out 'stanced' chav mobile with 21" ebay wheels people pour from the woodwork with comments like "looks sik bruv", "clean innit aiiit" and "dose rims r dope innit bred".

That car looks no worse than any other modded car. Atleast he's kept most of it OEM.

The confused advert is a common, even BMW get their models mixed up on the AUC website from time to time.

Anyhoo, it's the interweb, "a chacun son gout" as those with 'taste' would say.

Will casts his net ever wider in his quest to add to his already mega sized library of unsavoury pictures/images,god knows what he also found, and I guess there's not many people that would want to know

Look at the shot from the rear (photo 6), I think like they mounted the back box the wrong way round

I can't see how that ever started life as an M-sport with an interior like that?

I reckon it's an SE that has had a front and rear end shunt - repaired using second hand LCi parts - every chance it will turn out to be Cat-D or whatever. Probably won't find that out until it's being viewed. Especially with all the plates blanked out etc. You might do that on a forum to your own car, but not sure I would bother if I was flogging it?

With the reg plate it would be easy for an HPi check to be made and show up the exact model and it's potential colourful history.

I don't think it's that bad. Certainly not barf-inducing if it happened to pass in the street
