Shadow-finished 17″ Style 40 wheels are mounted with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires measuring 225/45 up front and 245/40 out back. The car is equipped with Dynamic Stability Control and All-Season Traction (AST), and braking is handled by four-wheel ventilated discs. The Carfax report notes that the control arm bushings and lower control arms were replaced along with a power steering hose at approximately 68k miles.
The cabin features black Nappa leather covering the heated sport seats, door panel inserts, and center console. Amenities include roll hoops, air conditioning, cruise control, an AM/FM cassette stereo, and a Harman Kardon sound system.
The M-branded leather-wrapped steering wheel features tri-color stitching and frames a tachometer with an 8k-rpm redline, a 170-mph speedometer, and gauges for coolant temperature and fuel level. The digital odometer indicates 69k miles.
The 3.2-liter S54B32 inline-six features double-VANOS variable valve timing and a Siemens MSS 54 engine management control system. Output was factory rated at 315 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a ZF five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. The fuel injection system was serviced and leaks from the oil relief valve and differential output shaft seal were repaired in 2017.
The Carfax report shows the aforementioned damage report in 2003 and lists registration history in Georgia, California, Tennessee, Washington State, and Texas.
