Who turned their 2010 E90 M Sport into Shelly BMW?

Trying to see if the previous owner of this 2010 Alpine e90 M Sport is on the forums or if anyone can identify the car.

It was turned into Shelly BMW within the past month or so, I'm assuming on a new lease. It had the matte grills and white out corners still installed which set off my spider sense that the previous owner probably had further mods that they took off.

Its CPO and I'm about to fly out from Vegas to purchase it sight un-seen and wanted to see if I could figure out its mod history.

There is a service entry on the maintenance record that says "Fuel tank drained and cleaned and valve cover gaskets replaced" What could cause that???

Some people have had leaky valve cover gaskets, so doesn't sound all that concerning. No idea on the tank. Ask to take off the passenger side DME cover and look for signs are entry. People have meen moding with great reliability, so I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Yeah, I think I'll have them do a compression and leak down before I take delivery just to be sure.
