Seller Description

This 2000 BMW M Roadster is finished in Dakar Yellow II over black Nappa leather and is powered by a 3.2-liter S52 inline-six paired with a five-speed manual transmission. Equipment includes 17″ Style 40 wheels, a limited-slip differential, a black convertible soft top, a CD stereo, a Harman Kardon sound system, heated sport seats, air conditioning, and cruise control. The car spent time in Missouri, Illinois, and Ohio before the selling dealer’s September 2022 acquisition and relocation to Pennsylvania, and it now has 68k miles. Work completed in November 2022 reportedly included replacing the clutch disc and flywheel. This M Roadster is now offered with a window sticker, manufacturer’s literature, a top boot, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Pennsylvania title.

This M Roadster is one of 196 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 selling dealer notes the soft top requires assistance to retract.

The 17″ Style 40 wheels are mounted with Bridgestone Potenza RE750 tires measuring 225/45 up front and 245/40 out back. 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. The rearview mirror is discolored.

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 68k 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, and the clutch disc and flywheel were reportedly replaced in November 2022.

Additional underside images are provided in the gallery below.

The window sticker shows initial delivery to Joe Machens BMW in Columbia, Missouri, and lists factory equipment, colors, options, and a total suggested retail price of $43,470. A top boot and manufacturer’s literature are also included in the sale.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists registration history in Missouri, Illinois, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

It was brought to my attention, and I agree that the spot welds in the trunk probably deserve further inspection.

Price reduced to $22,977 from $23,977 which is probably ok for the condition and color combo

We last saw this roadster at the beginning of the year in Ohio. It has a couple thousand new miles. It still looks to be all stock. Bidding up to $14,720.00 so far.
