Seller Description

Don’t miss this opportunity to own one of the more unique members of the BMW Z community.  2000 BMW Z3 M Roadster in Alpine White with Classic Red canvas top and two-tone Black & Red interior.  BMW has confirmed this is one of only 19 cars built in this color combination.  The 3.2 liter s52 engine has been augmented with an s50 large port intake manifold and Active Autowerkes intercooled supercharger kit; boosting power at the drive wheels from 240 hp to 325 hp and torque from 236 to 295 pound-feet.  The exhaust system has been upgraded to a Hartge stainless steel, high flow, “Cat Back” system.  Front brakes have been converted to e31 8 Series Sport, 4 piston Brembo calipers and European Z4 M floating rotors to keep the extra horsepower under control.  A Randy Forbes structural reinforcement kit and Rogue Engineering dual ear differential cover have been added to ensure the increased torque doesn’t damage the car’s structure.  D-Force LTW-5 wheels and 235/40-18 front, 275/35-18 rear tires have been added to keep the beast stuck to the road.  Other enhancements include, HID Projector Beam headlights and an Alpine stereo head unit with integrated Sirius/XM satellite radio receiver and iPod interface.  The odometer reads 125,463 miles.  The current owner has loved this car for over 12 years, but has recently made a brand change.  So, it is time for this awesome machine to put ear to ear smiles on someone else’s face.  The asking price is $9,500.  The car is located in Colchester, Connecticut.  Contact Lance at or 860-537-1715 for further details or to see the car.

This was sale pending days after it posted. Facebook listings are really annoying to try to track...

It needs a lot of TLC, but the color combo along with the upgrades make it well worth the asking price. Highlights are the Randy Forbes kit, AA supercharger, Rogue diff cover, IE subframe bushings and much more.
