Seller Description

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 Dakar Yellow II over black Nappa leather. Equipment includes silver-finished 17″ Style 40 wheels, a limited-slip differential, a black convertible soft top, a CD stereo, a Harman Kardon sound system, air conditioning, and cruise control. The car spent time in multiple states before it was exported to Canada following its sale on BaT in March 2021, and the selling dealer acquired it later that year. This M Roadster has 57k miles and is now offered by the selling dealer in Canada with a window sticker, service records, a clean Carfax report, and British Columbia registration.

This M Roadster is one of 95 finished in Dakar Yellow II over 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 right-rear wheel arch has been touched up, and work completed since the previous auction is said to have included repairing the daytime running lights and replacing the right door seal as well as the front and rear badging.

The 17″ Style 40 wheels have been refinished and are mounted with Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires measuring 225/45 up front and 245/40 out back. The car is equipped with Automatic Stability Control and Koni rear dampers, and braking is handled by four-wheel ventilated discs.

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, a CD stereo, and a Harman Kardon sound system. A replacement ZHP-style illuminated shift knob was reportedly fitted in 2021.

The 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 57k 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. The selling dealer reports that the cooling fan was replaced in 2021.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a ZF five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. The transmission fluid was reportedly changed in 2021.

The window sticker shows initial delivery to Patrick BMW in Schaumburg, Illinois as well as factory equipment, colors, options, and a total suggested retail price of $43,470. Service records, a top boot, and black magnetic stone guards are also included in the sale.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists registration history in Michigan, Illinois, Nevada, Washington State, and British Columbia, Canada.

We've seen this one for sale in the US a couple times. It has now made it's way to Canada. The price seems a little optimistic even for Canada.
