This 1998 BMW Z3 M Roadster in Imola Red with black convertible top with black and red accent interior with only 45K miles. This M Roadster is in mint condition and if you are looking at this ad, you already know what an incredible work of engineering marvel this car is, and how rare...only 10,501 were produced for both European and North American markets between 1998 and 2002, of which only 2,763 were in 1998. Less than 1,000 were ever made with this color combo, and in my opinion, it is by far the best with the Imola Red with the two tone interior. That all being said, you will be hard pressed to find a nicer one out there! This BMW is fast and fun to drive and is in excellent condition. This FL car was purchased locally at Reeves BMW never been out of the state of FL and looks like new. Is has Ice cold A/C, Always garaged, Looks and drives great and needs nothing. New Michelin Pilot Sports tires (less the 1k miles), New Alpine head unit, No accidents (Clean Carfax), Non-smoker, Spotless interior and exterior, well maintained. This car tracks like a bullet and is quick powered by an Inline 3.2L 6 cylinder BMW M3 motor. The black top is in great shape and rear window is clear. This is a classic vehicle and was recently named one of the top ten collectible convertibles that you should buy now. Always garaged, No pets or children and have Title in hand. You will not find a cleaner 1998 M Roadster in the area and I guarantee you will not be disappointed in the vehicle. I'm asking $17,995 OBO cash, wire transfer or certified bank check only and I'm not interested in a trade and I will not ship so its pickup only in North Pinellas County.
The BMW M Roadster was designed to be the high performance version of the BMW Z3, and there were significant differences between the two variants. The body of the Z3 M Roadster had a few differences compared to the standard Z3 models. These included front and rear bumpers, gills, boot and mirrors.
Under the skin many of the components were upgraded with the rear suspension being derived from the E30 M3 and the front suspension and brake system being shared with the E36 M3. The M Roadster has a wider track under the flared wheel arches as well as wider wheels and tires to try to tame the increased power. A dual exhaust system fed each set of three cylinders to two dual tailpipes. The Z3 M roadster was the first BMW automobile to feature this quad exhaust design which has since become a BMW M division signature.
The interior had a different look to the standard Z3, the M-sport steering wheel available only on the Z3 M-sport was standard on the M Roadster. The car also has different instrumentation such as an oil temperature gauge. Finally, the car was available in M-specific colors which were not available for the regular Z3, at least in the early production years (with the exception of BMW's Individual program).
