Seller Description

This 2000 BMW M Roadster has covered just 28k miles and is one of 4,338 made for the North American market that year and one of just 31 built in Dakar Yellow II over dark gray/black two-tone Nappa leather. It is powered by a 3.2L S52 inline-six paired to a 5-speed ZF manual transmission. The selling dealer acquired the car last October and has since performed an inspection and an oil change. This M Roadster is now offered with a matching OEM hardtop, original manuals, a clean Carfax showing two California owners and a clean California title.

The body is finished in Dakar Yellow II with a black soft top and a matching Dakar Yellow II hardtop, both of which are shown in the gallery below. M Roadsters received unique side vents, rearview mirrors, and a different front fascia with larger brake-cooling ducts. A scratch on the left rear quarter panel is noted in the gallery below.

Staggered 17-inch Roadster 5-spoke alloy wheels are mounted with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. The wheels show some paint wear noted in the gallery below.

The interior is finished in dark gray and black Nappa leather on the seats, center console, and door panels. M floor mats and sill covers are visible.

The leather-wrapped M Sport steering wheel with gray accents sits in front of chrome-ringed gauges. The digital odometer indicates 28k miles. Three secondary gauges are located in the center console below the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo.

The S52 3.2-liter DOHC inline-six was originally rated at 240 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque for the US market. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a ZF 5-speed manual transmission and standard limited-slip differential. The seller had the oil changed earlier this year.

Additional undercarriage photos are available in the gallery.

The Carfax shows two California owners and no accidents or other damage.

I was hoping this one would end up in private hands with it's previous great price. It's a nice, rare, low mileage roadster. The new price is a little optimistic though.
