Seller Description

This 2001 BMW M Roadster is powered by a 3.2-liter S54 inline-six paired with a five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. It is finished in Imola Red over black Nappa leather and is equipped with 17″ M Road Star wheels, a black convertible soft top, a removable hardtop, a Sony stereo, air conditioning, heated seats, and cruise control. The seller acquired the car in April 2008 and has since added approximately 10k of the 35k indicated miles. This M Roadster is now offered with a window sticker, the owner’s manual, a car cover, a clean Carfax report, and a Texas title in the seller’s name.

This M Roadster is one of 64 examples finished in Imola Red over black Nappa leather for the North American market for the model year. Features include a power-operated black convertible soft top, a removable hardtop, front fender vents, and quad exhaust outlets. The soft top rear window is said to have been replaced in September 2021.

The 17″ M Road Star 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 and All-Season Traction (AST), 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 Sony stereo.

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 35k miles, approximately 10k 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. An oil change was performed in March 2021.

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

The window sticker lists standard equipment, options and additional charges, and the car’s total suggested retail price.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or damage and lists registration history in North Carolina, Virginia, and Texas.
