Seller Description

Anyone interested in my Imolarot ‘98 BMW M Roadster? I moved to another city for college and didn’t take it with me but it was my daily. Has just over 91k miles now and I really wanted it to go to someone who appreciates these cars. Located in Portland Oregon area.

Before i moved i was driving her at least 200 miles a week and a road trip to and from california, any work i’ve done was because I didn’t trust what the last guy did + preventive maintenance. She’s never let me down. I looked far and wide for this Imolarot exterior X black/Imolarot interior combination.

Cleaned every week and oil changed every 4,000 miles along with only being filled with premium gas. Always kept in my garage and still is. Never redlined in my ownership of this car there’s really no need to it’s plenty zippy.

Price reduced to $15,000 from $18,000 and added a much better description. Seems like a good deal now.

The previous listign has more detail including the subframe reinforcement with Rogue diff cover. I like that it's back to the stock bumper rather than the 1M-style one it used to have. The Beyern wheels are interesting as well as the big wing. Most of the details are in the photos which is kidn of annoying. The price seems fair.
