 purchased this car locally in Spring 2015 and set about preparing it to compete in
local Porsche Club/ BMWCCA autocross events. Then I bought a 996 GT3 and have
found them to be redundant, so it’s time for the M Roadster to find a new home. Desirable color combo and well sorted, with blue/blue dash and blue top. Think of this as the E36/7 Lightweight. I have spent thousands making this car the best running and performing version of the E36/7 M Roadster while maintaining its streetability. Not only a low mileage dry original Z3M in arguably the best color combination, it has been totally gone through with all wear items replaced with OEM or better. Would love for this to go to someone who will appreciate the work done and enjoy it.

We've seen this roadster a number of times over the years. it looks much the same as it did last year when it was for sale privately. It still has the hard top and the ///M stripes. It also said it has subframe reinforcement in the previous listing. The price is a little optimistic for the mileage though.
