Seller Description

This 2002 BMW M Roadster was first registered in Illinois and spent time in Indiana and Maryland before it was acquired by the seller on BaT in 2017. It now shows 41k miles and is powered by a 3.2-liter S54 inline-six mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The car is finished in Black Sapphire Metallic over black and features heated front sport seats, a CD radio, air conditioning, and cruise control. Polyurethane subframe bushings were added by the seller, and the oil was changed in November 2019. This M Roadster is now offered with a clean Carfax report and a clean Connecticut title in the seller’s name.

This example is one of 150 finished in Black Sapphire Metallic with a black convertible top over a black Nappa leather interior. Features include M Roadster-specific front and rear fascias, M-badged side vents, and quad exhaust tips, and the seller notes rock chips and scraping on the bottom of the front bumper.

Factory 17″ Style 40 alloy wheels are wrapped in staggered Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires showing 2016 date codes. The seller reportedly installed polyurethane subframe bushings and had the auto-dimming rearview mirror repaired.

The heated sports seats are upholstered in black Nappa leather. Amenities include a CD radio with an aftermarket bluetooth unit, air conditioning, and cruise control. The seller reportedly replaced the front speakers, repaired a rear speaker, and installed an aftermarket wind deflector.

The leather-wrapped M Sport steering wheel fronts gray instrument dials including a 170-mph speedometer and a 9k-rpm tachometer. The digital odometer shows 41k miles, 5k of which were added by the seller.

The 3.2-liter S54 inline-six sends power to the rear wheels through a ZF five-speed manual transmission. The most recent service included an oil change in November 2019.

Additional underside photos are presented in the gallery below.

The May 2020 Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists registration history in Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, and Connecticut. Floor mats, replacement seatbelt guides, and a spare differential bushing are included in the sale.

The last time we saw this roadster it was being sold by Avazi Auto back in 2017. It has about 6k new miles in that time. It seems much the same besides new subframe bushings which is nice. Bidding is at $8,000 so far.
