Excellent California ownership history, non smoker, always garaged. This Z3 M Roadster was set up to use for autocross and track usage by the meticulous previous owner and once it was completed, he took it to one autocross event in Anaheim in 2017. After that, felt that the car was simply 'too nice' to use it again on the track, and proceeded to buy a Porsche 911 GT3 for his 'track car'. The previous owner did continue to drive the car several hundred miles locally before he ran out of garage space. I purchased it in 2020 for my personal collection and have driven it sparingly, but due to recent health problems and down-sizing of my collection this beautiful Z3 M Roadster is now available and ON SALE! Factory equipped with the following options; power dark blue convertible soft top, body color factory hard top, harman/kardon premium audio system, AM/FM/CD, chrome interior appointments, center console valet, air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, power mirrors, cruise control, clear turn signal lenses and side markers, alarm system, 17" style 40 "M Roadstar" staggered light alloy wheels. Equipped with the following modifications; The original seats have been replaced with black velour Recaro Pole Position fixed bucket racing seats, which are installed with Motion Motorsport seat brackets and Crow 4-point racing harnesses. Custom 4-point roll cage and X-brace with a harness bar, a Sparco steering wheel, Never Done Garage door panels with blue fabric pull straps, an M aluminum shift knob, a UUC clutch stop, and an OEM radio delete panel. The original steering wheel, door panels, roll hoops, and radio are included. This Z3 received a Clutchmasters single mass clutch and lightened flywheel, a short-throw shifter, a custom GMG racing center pipe with high flow catalytic converters, new exhaust hangers and seals, a Cosmos Racing cold air intake, a Mishimoto oversized aluminum radiator, Status Gruppe SGT-SRS fully adjustable coilovers, and a Racing Dynamics front strut brace. Recently at 48,000 miles, the water pump, belt, tensioner, thermostat, and radiator hoses were replaced along with new spark plugs, coil packs, a camshaft position sensor, transmission mounts, guibo, and VANOS system service. The front brake pads and rotors have been recently changed, the subframe has been reinforced, and the lower chassis X-brace has been powder coated. A service was also completed at BMW Fresno less than 140 miles ago, including new oil, filters, and a brake fluid flush. The tires are due for replacement, but due to the picky-ness of certain enthusiasts, we have left the decision on what brand of tire to install up to you! EXCELLENT CONDITION!  DRIVES AND LOOKS LIKE A REAL, ORIGINAL, 53,000 MILE Z3 M ROADSTER SHOULD!   YOU REALLY MUST SEE AND DRIVE THIS ADULT OWNED ROCKETSHIP TO APPRECIATE ALL THAT IT HAS TO OFFER!  ZERO TO SIXTY IN 4.5 SECONDS!

We've seen this roadster quite a few times over the years. It still has it's hard top which is a big plus. It has quite a few other upgrades as well. The price is pretty optimistic though.
