My 2000 BMW M Roadster is up for sale. I've owned it since 2015, garage kept, used primarily as a weekend driver, averaging about 4,000 miles per year. It just passed smog last month and everything about the car has been solid, I've really had to do nothing but preventative maintenance.
When I first purchased the vehicle I replaced the entire cooling system (radiator, fan, thermostat, hoses, and upgraded Stewart water pump with metal impeller). Since then it's been mostly minor stuff, I've replaced the original rubber bushings with Powerflex bushings, installed a Dinan strut brace to help with turn-in, replaced the rear plastic window, and had Opticoat ceramic coating done so the paint looks fantastic. I also had HG Motorsports install a Dinan cold air intake which really brings out the induction noise, it sounds amazing! Tires are still relatively new, they are Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2 and have about 6,000 miles on them.
As for what's wrong with the vehicle, there is a small dent in the rear bumper which was there when I bought it, I just had them apply some touch-up paint during the Opticoat detail and called it a day. You can see it in one of the pictures I attached. The battery voltage gauge (center console) gave out last year but the shop convinced me it wasn't worth fixing. On the front hood of the car there are a few little nicks from rocks but not really noticeable unless you're looking for imperfections, just normal wear from driving and enjoying the vehicle!
Oil changes were done myself using Liqui Molly 5w40 at least every 3,000 miles or each season. I also put in a magnetic drain plug so I check that for metal every time I changed the oil.
Overall the car is in great shape and has been a blast to own, I've taken it on drives all over the place from Palomar Mountain to the Malibu Hills to Joshua Tree. The reason for selling is I now have an 8-month old and with only 2 seats I just don't see myself being able to use it much anymore.
Note that prior to 2001 these vehicles had the S52 motor. I did a lot of research on the differences between the S52 and S54 and ultimately ended up being really happy with the S52 motor.
Thanks for looking, please contact me with any questions.
Serious buyers only please.
