Seller Description

Very nice condition M Roadster. BMW took the Z3 and upgraded the engine, dual exhaust, transmission, differential, brakes, wide body, frame stiffening, and wheels...was a major M project done well and very fun to drive. 81,600 mi, well maintained with less than 10K on tires, clutch, belts, and 15K on brakes. 3rd owner (new in SF Bay area, then SD County) with full records. 240 hp S52 engine has Shark performance chip (+20 hp or so). Imola Red with black interior w/ good AC and heated seats. New rear window and plexiglass panel at back of seats. Last of the nanny-free analog cars. Classis old school long-hood convertible.

Just replaced the rear window, made a nice difference.

The subframe reinforcement was done by a local BMW shop that races offroad.  Was done proactively- I have before and after pictures for anyone interested in the car.   Repainted using stock color so very cleanly done.

Sounds like it has subframe reinforcement as well which is a huge plus.

It sounds like it has been very well maintained. It has a couple upgrades like the front strut bar and rear plexiglass. The price seems fair.
