Seller Description

This 1998 BMW Z3 M Roadster is finished in Arctic Silver Metallic over black Nappa leather and is powered by a 3.2-liter inline-six mated to a five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. Features include a black soft top, air conditioning, cruise control, a Harman-Kardon sound system, 17″ Style 40 wheels, and a Dinan air intake and strut tower brace. The car spent time in California and Washington before it relocated with its original owner to Hawaii, where it was purchased by the seller in 2020. It now has just over 26k miles, and recent service included an oil change, a brake fluid flush, and replacement of the fuel pump, fuel filter, antenna, rear window, and tires. This M Roadster is now offered with a toolkit, service records from current ownership, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Hawaii title in the seller’s name.

The exterior is finished in Arktissilber metallic (309) with a power-retractable black soft top and features rollover hoops, fender grilles, a front spoiler, brake cooling ducts, and quad exhaust outlets. The rear window, antenna, and antenna seal were recently replaced, and scratches are noted underneath the front bumper.

Style 40 17″ alloy wheels are mounted with Continental ExtremeContact tires that were installed in November 2020, at which time a brake fluid flush was also performed.

The interior features heated sport seats upholstered in black full Nappa leather (Q6SW) with matching door panels and dashboard, while the carpets are protected by M-branded floor mats. Additional amenities consist of cruise control, air conditioning, power accessories, and a Harman-Kardon sound system.

The leather-wrapped steering wheel features tri-color Motorsport stitching and frames an M Roadster-branded tachometer and a 160-mph speedometer. Auxiliary gauges are mounted in the center console, and the digital odometer indicates 26k miles, approximately 300 of which were added by the seller.

The 3.2-liter S52 inline-six is equipped with a carbon-fiber Dinan air intake, and a Dinan upper strut brace is also fitted. Services in November 2020 included an oil change and replacement of the fuel pump and fuel filter.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. Additional underside photos are provided in the gallery below.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists history in California, Washington, and Hawaii from two registered owners between August 1998 and its most recent entry November 2020.
