Yeah, I've seen one in QLD. Johnie from 5th Gear has actually done it to an M3 in the UK.

The one I saw in QLD was obvious though because it didn't have OEM headlights and IIRC had the short boot handle. There are a heap of small differences between the two models that many people wouldn't change. Look for things like the boot handle, OEM LED tail lights, the center headrest etc.
