Seller Description

This 2001 BMW M Roadster was purchased new by the seller from Pegasus Motorcar Company of Charlottesville, Virginia, and now has 55k miles. The car is powered by a 3.2-liter S54 inline-six paired with a five-speed manual transmission and is finished in Imola Red over Dark Beige Oregon leather. Equipment includes Shadow-finished 17″ Style 40 wheels, a limited-slip differential, a beige convertible soft top, a removable hardtop, an alarm system, a Harman Kardon sound system, power-adjustable and heated seats, a CD stereo, air conditioning, and cruise control. This M Roadster is now offered with a window sticker, manufacturer’s literature, a boot cover, a rear window cover, a toolkit, an accident-free Carfax report, and a clean Virginia title in the seller’s name.

This M Roadster is one of approximately 1,760 North American market units finished in Imola Red for the model year. Features include a power-operated beige convertible soft top, a removable body-color hardtop, front fender vents, and quad exhaust outlets. A boot cover and a rear window cover are included in the sale. According to the seller, discoloration is visible on the rear window.

Shadow-finished 17″ Style 40 wheels are mounted with Michelin Pilot Sport tires measuring 225/45 up front and 245/40 out back. The car is equipped with Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and Automatic Stability Control (AST), and braking is handled by four-wheel ventilated discs. The tires are in need of replacement.

The cabin features Dark Beige Oregon leather covering the heated and power-adjustable sport seats, door panel inserts, and center console. Amenities include roll hoops, air conditioning, cruise control, an alarm system, a CD stereo, and a Harman Kardon sound system.

An 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 55k miles, all of which were added under current ownership.

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 window sticker lists an initial delivery to Pegasus Motorcar Company of Charlottesville, Virginia, along with equipment, colors, and a total suggested retail price of $48,735.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists history in Virginia since new. A recall regarding the DME was issued in September 2006.

It's nice that it's had just one owner, and beige interior is pretty rare on M Roadsters (1 of 18). The beige soft top is also very rare (only 43). It's mostly stock besides the OEM Euro clear bumper lights and big center armrest. Bidding up to $20,000.00 so far.
