Quick Bio: '98 M-roadster, I bought the car from an older gentleman who had owned it for quite some time.
It was a Sunday fun car for him, the vehicle was in terrific shape just needed some rubber components replaced due to age and the typical maintenance usual to BMW's. I replaced and inspected everything that was a problem area then had it inspected recently by a local indy shop just to make sure I wasn't missing anything.
This car is an absolute gokart, runs effortlessly, and sets it self apart from the sea of Miatas, S2000s, and every other common sports car of its time frame.

After almost a year of ownership I'm thinning out my fleet because I'm choosing a different direction in life, and need to liquefy some of my assets . Regretfully, I will have to sell this little demon and hopefully I can find another enthusiast to take good care of her, and enjoy it to its fullest.

Maintenance/Parts replaced
-Clutch Master and Slave cylinder replaced (July)
-Drive line inspected and replaced pressure plate and resurfaced flywheel (clutch was recently replaced)
-All tires replaced in with less than 100 Miles (July)
-Radio/Head unit was replaced with a restored factory original unit
-Replaced all brake pads and rotors with PAGID oem equivalent
-Replaced Door handle gaskets, antenna gaskets, and assorted weather stripping (November '18)
-Cooling system and driveline fluids replaced last year during previous ownership

-Drives beautifully, pulls hard and cycles through gears smoothly
-Clean title and retains all original body panels and paint work
-Convertible top functions flawlessly and keeps out water as intended
-Windows, and all electronic accessories are 100% functional
-A.C. is well functioning and blows cold
-Car was inspected by a local BMW indy service shop and came out with a clean bill of health, nothing is needed replacement for the next 10k miles
- No leaks, smoke, funny noises, or abnormal activity. This car is an absolute tight driver.
- Working oem 6-CD changer (oooooh!)

-Will Need some Paint correction on the front bumper/hood.
-Wheels could use some refinishing, some peeling on the barrels, but still presents well.
-Lower portion of the drivers seat is displaying some cracking. Upper portions are in great shape and very supple
-Convertible top rear screen will need to be replaced due to reduced viability, BUT I do have a factory replacement that simply zips in place.

I like the recent maintenance list and none of the cons are too bad. The price seems fair.
