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 is finished in Estoril Blue Metallic over Estoril Blue and black Nappa leather. The seller’s father purchased the car in 2010 and it has remained within the family since. Now indicating 56k miles, the car is equipped with 17″ Style 40 wheels, a limited-slip differential, a black convertible soft top, a removable hardtop, an alarm system, a CD stereo, a Harman Kardon sound system, air conditioning, and cruise control. This M Roadster is now offered with a clean Carfax report and a clean Washington State title in the seller’s name.

This M Roadster is one of 104 finished in Estoril Blue Metallic over Estoril Blue and 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. Clear paint protection film covers the front bumper, mirror caps, and front section of the hood, and M-color decals have been added to the right-rear quarter panel. The soft top rear window was reportedly recently replaced.

Silver-finished 17″ Style 40 wheels are mounted with Toyo Proxes 4 Plus tires measuring 225/45 up front and 245/40 out back. 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 Estoril Blue and black Nappa leather covering the heated 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. The air-conditioning system was reportedly recently recharged, and the seller notes a blemish on the center stack trim near the climate controls. The driver’s seat outer bolster is worn.

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 56k miles, approximately 17k of which were added by the seller’s family. The seller notes an intermittent illuminated check engine light on the dashboard.

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. The engine mounts require replacement.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a ZF five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. The seller notes that the rear subframe mounts require replacement.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists registration history in Massachusetts, Illinois, Florida, and Washington State.

It seems to be well cared for by it's long time owners. The hard top is the highlight, and it sounds like it's stock besides the audio. The price seems fair with the hard top.
