Seller Description

Summer time is here again, and you can enjoy it in this is very well maintained M Roadster. Less than 1,200 Arctic Silver metallic (309) were sold in the entire US! And it has only 96,000 miles! I've owned if for the past 7 years. Recently invested over $5,500 in parts and service. Looks amazing, except for a small dent on the hood. Comes with premium outdoor cover; cover for indoor storage; original magazines featuring this car; matching HotWheels model car; and brand new front and rear emblems.

The M Roadster is the BMW M-developed version of the Z3. It uses one of three 24-valve six-cylinder engines originally developed by BMW M for the E36 M3 and E46 M3. It also has an M-tuned chassis and several unique cosmetic parts.

Like all Z3-based cars, every M roadster was assembled at the Spartanburg, South Carolina factory. The drivetrain was assembled in Germany and mated with the rest of the car at Spartanburg.

In addition to the larger displacement, the S52 utilizes the following special M components:

-Ported and polished cylinder head
-Retuned VANOS variable valve timing for greater high-rpm power
-Heavy-duty valve springs
-More finely balanced camshafts
-Valve lifters, springs and spring seats with reduced mass
-Free-flowing intake and exhaust systems

Compared to the six-cylinder Z3, the drivetrain of the M roadster also has the following modifications:

-Wider front and rear tracks (by 0.4-inches)
-Reduced ride height (by 1.1-inches)
-Modified front suspension geometry
-Firmer springs and shocks
-Thicker anti-roll bars
-Stronger semi-trailing arms
-Reinforced subframe

Selling because I rarely use it. Don't contact me if you do not appreciate the value of this car or want to negotiate the price.

Price reduced to $10,900 from $11,900 which seems like a decent deal with all the recent maintenance

It seems like it's had a good long time owner. It has a lot of recent maintenance though it's not specified. The price seems fair.
