Seller Description

2000 BMW Z3 M Roadster for sale. Low miles. This car has been a lot of fun! But, I have some life changes coming up that require a move and I'm looking to consolidate my two vehicles into a single, newer vehicle.

For a great review of the BMW Z3 M Roadster, Google "Jalopnik Five Reasons Why You Need To Buy A BMW Z3 M Right Now"

The good:
-Best color combo ever offered (in my opinion)
-Red soft top
-Low miles
-M Power
-New tires (<5,000 miles)
-New clutch (<10,000 miles), very smooth shifting
-Fixed issue where shifter pulls toward the passenger side
-Aftermarket weighted short shifter (an awesome upgrade over the standard longer non-weighted version)
-Includes both black and red tonneau covers (red was custom made... close match to Imola red but not perfect)
-Chrome upgrades including roll bars, wheels and interior/exterior chrome accents (door handle surrounds, E-brake button, door locks)
-Center console with custom matching Imola red armrest
-Upgraded stereo with USB, pandora, CD, radio

The not so good:
-Branded title (title was branded for reported flood damage at some point in the past. I can see no evidence of flood damage)
-Body work (driver side was damaged in an accident and required some body work. all professionally performed, see photos)
-Check engine light (comes on occasionally with a P0455 code. this is a common issue with these vehicles and is related to an emissions error... the light eventually goes off on its own but can also be reset with a basic code reader... Google "P0455 Issue Solved Bimmerforums" for discussion of a fix)
-Driver seat door-side leather shows signs of wear (a universal issue in these cars)
-Driver and passenger seat bushings are worn allowing mild seat rocking (a universal issue in these cars)
-Some tiny cracks in the center console (a common issue in these cars)

Any questions, please ask.  All sales are final.  I can help arrange shipping if local pick up is not possible.

Somehow sold to a high bid of just $5,000. What a steal!

It's been a couple years since we last saw this roadster. The miles are still lower, but it has a salvage title. The new red soft top is cool though.
