Seller Description

This 2000 BMW M Roadster shows just under 67k miles and is powered by a 3.2L S52 inline-six paired with a 5-speed manual transmission and limited-slip differential. The car is finished in Imola Red over a black and red leather interior and was acquired by the seller via a BaT auction in March 2017. Features include heated seats, a Classic Red soft top, and 17″ M Roadstar wheels. A serviced performed in August 2018 included an oil change and inspection. This M Roadster is now offered with factory manuals, the window sticker, two sets of keys, a clean Carfax report, and a clean California title in the seller’s name.

Z3Ms featured unique styling compared to the standard roadster, including more aggressive front and rear bumpers, fender vents with M badging, and quad exhaust tips. This example is finished in Imola Red. A BMW replacement hood showing DOT-R stickers has been fitted. The paint and trim are shown up close in the photo gallery below.

The factory 17″ Style 40 wheels are staggered in width and wear Continental ExtremeContact DW tires. This car is reportedly one of just 300 M Roadsters produced with a Classic Red power convertible soft top.

The cabin is trimmed in black and red with Nappa leather along the seats, center console, doors, and dash. Factory amenities include an M Leather steering wheel, a Harman Kardon sound system, heated seats, air conditioning, and cruise control.

Polished trim rings surround the 160-mph speedometer and 8k-rpm tachometer. The digital odometer shows just under 67k miles, 6,600 of which were driven by the seller over two years of ownership.

The 3.2-liter S52 inline-six features dual overhead camshafts and VANOS variable valve timing. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a ZF 5-speed manual transmission and limited-slip differential. The seller reports the car received an oil change and inspection in August 2018, and a California emissions test was passed in March 2019.

Additional undercarriage images are shown in the gallery below.

The original window sticker has been retained and shows a suggested retail price of $43,470.

Factory owner’s literature and two sets of keys are also included in the sale.

The recent Carfax report indicates no accidents or other damage, and lists registration in Texas, Utah, Nevada, and California.

As mentioned in the listing, we last saw this roadster on Bring a Trailer a couple years ago. It has 7,000 new miles, but looks mostly the same. The red soft top makes it a little more unique.
