Seller Description

This 2002 BMW M Roadster was purchased new by the seller who has since added all of the 84k indicated miles. The car is powered by a 3.2-liter S54 inline-six paired with a five-speed manual transmission and is finished in Black Sapphire Metallic over black Nappa leather. Equipment includes Shadow-finished 17″ Style 40 wheels, a limited-slip differential, a black convertible soft top, a body-color removable hardtop, a CD stereo, a Harman Kardon sound system, air conditioning, and cruise control. This M Roadster is now offered by the original owner with a window sticker, the owner’s manual, service records, a car cover, a hardtop stand, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Texas title in the seller’s name.

This M Roadster is one of 71 finished in Black Sapphire Metallic over black Nappa leather for the North American market for the model year. Features include a power-operated black convertible soft top, a removable body-color hardtop, front fender vents, and quad exhaust outlets. The seller reports that dents in the right-rear quarter panel and doors have been repaired and that the soft top plastic rear window was replaced in 2016. Existing imperfections include scratches on the right door and corrosion on the underside of the hardtop, as shown in the gallery below.

Shadow-finished 17″ Style 40 wheels have curb marks and are mounted with Road Hugger GTZ A/S tires reportedly installed in December 2022. The car is equipped with Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) 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 BMW Business CD stereo, and a Harman Kardon sound system. The seller notes blemishes on the trim ahead of the shifter and that the rearview mirror has been replaced.

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 seller notes that the instrument cluster was replaced to address an intermittently inoperative tachometer in 2009, and the digital odometer indicates 84k 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 clutch components were reportedly replaced at 63k miles and the seller notes corrosion on underside hardware.

The window sticker lists factory equipment, colors, options, and a total suggested retail price of $46,635. Manufacturer’s literature, a car cover, a hardtop stand, and service records are also included in the sale.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists registration history in Texas and Massachusetts with one owner since new.

It's a one-owner S54 with a hard top. It looks to be all stock, has all the service records, and seems to have been well taken care of. I think it's a decent deal with the history and hard top.
