This 1999 BMW M Roadster is powered by a 3.2-liter S52 inline-six paired with a five-speed manual transmission and is finished in Estoril Blue over two-tone Nappa leather. Equipment includes silver-finished 17″ Style 40 wheels, a limited-slip differential, a black convertible soft top, a BMW Business CD stereo, heated seats, a Harman Kardon sound system, air conditioning, and cruise control. The car has spent time in Florida and Illinois, and it now has 69k miles following its recent acquisition by the selling dealer. This M Roadster is offered with a Carfax report and a clean Illinois title.

This M Roadster is one of 306 examples finished in Estoril Blue over Estoril Blue and black Nappa leather for the North American market for the model year. Features include a power-operated black convertible soft top, front fender vents, and quad exhaust outlets. The Carfax report lists an accident occurring in August 2013 with damage to the left-rear corner, and another accident with damage to the nose was recorded in June 2015. The front bumper cover and hood have been repainted.

Silver-finished 17″ Style 40 wheels are wrapped in Continental ExtremeContact DW Tuned tires. The car is equipped with Automatic Stability Control, and braking is handled by four-wheel ventilated discs.

The cabin features Estoril Blue and black Nappa leather covering the heated sport seats, door panel inserts, and center console. Amenities include roll hoops, air conditioning, cruise control, a BMW Business CD stereo, and a Harman Kardon sound system.

The M-branded leather-wrapped steering wheel features tri-color stitching and frames a tachometer with a 6,800-rpm redline, a 160-mph speedometer, and gauges for coolant temperature and fuel level. The digital odometer indicates 69k miles.

The 3.2-liter S52B32 inline-six features VANOS variable valve timing and was factory rated at 240 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a ZF five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential.

The Carfax report shows the aforementioned accidents and lists registration history in Florida and Illinois.

The photos look nice. It has about 10k new miles since we last saw it way back in 2014. The price seems pretty optimistic though.
