Seller Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Louisville is proud to present this 1998 BMW M Roadster! BMW was founded all the way back in 1916 and made aircraft engines, some of which were involved in WW1. They wouldn't make their first car until 1928. Over the next many decades BMW would make an incredible name for themselves in their effort to make the ultimate driving machine. Fast forward up to the 90s BMW was looking to make a fun new roadster and the Z3 was born. After a few years of success in 1998 BMW unveiled the Z3M or simply the M Roadster and that is what we have here, a 1998, first year of the first generation. As you walk around this roadster you'll notice the Estorial Blue paint is in good shape and the blue/black leather interior looks good but with signs of wear on the bolsters. Under the hood is where you'll find the biggest difference over the standard Z3. The Z3M Roadster jumps up from a 2.8L to a 3.2L Inline 6-Cylinder engine good for 240hp and torque is almost at the same value! Power is ran through a 5-speed manual gearbox and shifts very smooth. This Beemer has both tops; a removable hard-shell and power soft-top that is so quite you can barely hear it operate. The current owner has had her for over 10 years, acquired from a private owner out of Kentucky. This BMW comes with a stack of receipts/maintenance records, both tops, original car cover, hard top satchel, convertible boot, original mats, and more. The Carfax is clean, no accidents. Title is clean and clear and ready to be transferred into your name now. M Roadster's were not mass produced, so they are not often seen, especially ones that are well maintained and come with all that this one does. If you want a nice fun little roadster this one certainly deserves a strong look! Options on this BMW are: A/C, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Power Windows/Locks/Mirrors/Seats, Removeable Hardtop, Power Soft-top, Leather Interior, AM/FM/CD Radio, and Alloy Wheels.

The hard top is the biggest plus. It looks mostly stock besides the armrest. The price seems really optimistic for the mileage.
