Seller Description


Up for sale is my 01 M Roadster in Laguna Seca Blue with the Black and Leguna Seca Blue interior. M Roadsters of 01 and 02 are equipped with the same S54 motor as in the E46 M3; unlike the 98-99 model years that have the US-only S52 motor that was far inferior to the Euro-spec motors. 01-02 models have the same motor as those in Europe. As such, this Roadster with the S54
motor is super rare (only 1,565 ever made for North America), of which, this color combo makes it ultra rare with only a few hundred built in this color combo. Laguna Seca Blue is exclusive for M cars. Furthermore, as it’s VIN suggests, this is the 16th M Roadster with the S54 motor ever made! Originally, this M was shipped throughout North America for press and promotional purposes in the first year of its existence, this is documented in the CarFax.

This VIN matching car has a clean title, has low miles at 100,0xx miles and is completely up to date in service and preventive maintenance that includes a complete fluids exchange, seals replacement and fixes of some common gremlins that plague these roadsters. Recent services exceed $4,000 from a reputable shop completed less than 6months ago.

This Z3M is in incredible condition with no dents on the exterior and no rips or tears on the interior. Everything works and drives flawlessly. It had a BMW OEM hardtop since new, therefore, the convertible top is in mint condition; the top was conditioned and lubed once a year and always had a rear window protector/cover on.

The list of recent services/maintenances include but are not limited to the following:
-air filter change
-brake fluids bleed and change
-Fuel filter replacement
-engine seal kit replacement (replaces every single engine seal including the rear seal). Guaranteed no oil leaks for another 100k miles
-Clutch and Flywheel replacement
-coolant flush
-UUC Oem engine mounts kit
-UUC Oem transmission mounts kit
-motor oil flush and replacement
-transmission oil flush and replacement
-engine belts replacement
-new battery
-spark plugs and coil packs replaced

Z3M Common Gremlins fixed:
-driver and passenger seat mount bushings replaced
-saggy glovebox fix
-center subwoofer replaced
-door handle seals replaced
-rear antenna grommet replacement

This vehicle also had upgrades within the last 6 months at the time of the above service. These are tasteful upgrades to enhance the driving experience and highlight the S54 motor. Upgrades include:

-UUC evo3 Short Shifter kit with new bushings
-UUC double sheer selector rod
-Conforti Shark Injector: raises redline to 8100rpm, adds 12.9hp and 6.7 lbft torque at the wheels, fuel mapping changes makes throttle more responsive, and changes the DSC button into DSC-off and sports button
-UUC steel braided brake lines at all four corners
-UUC steel braided clutch line (brand new, not installed)
-HID low beam bulbs (4300k color)
-LED light bulbs replacement all around
-ceramic window tints all around

Accessories includes but not limited to:
-BMW brand car cover

$21,000 firm with the hard top or $19,500 without the hardtop; I have a buyer on standby for the hardtop.

Car fax available, just ask.

We last saw this roadster almost a year ago. It has picked up a hard top and some great maintenance since then. I love the color combo! The price seems fair.
