Seller Description

Up for sale is my 1998 BMW M Roadster. I bought this car in March of 2023 and drove it for the summer before storing it this past winter. I’ve put around 1000 miles on it and it's been solid and reliable. The car is a high mileage example with a very strong and clean S52. The car currently has a Turner Motorsports catback exhaust and is lowered on H&R lowering springs with Bilstein B8 shocks. However, I have the stock exhaust and the stock springs to include with the car. The exterior is a 7/10 with some wear and scratches but still looks amazing from a few feet away. Underneath there is no rust as this car has never been driven in the winter. I’ve never seen a cleaner car of this era which makes it a breeze to work on. The rear window has started separating from the soft top but I also have a brand new soft top to include with the car. The interior was originally evergreen (very rare) but someone decided to dye it black. The seats have been recovered black but I was able to remove the dye from the door cards. The windshield trim and center console trim can also be saved I just have not had time.  The car drives amazingly and is a blast with the top down in the summer. If you would like pictures of anything in particular please let me know.

Powercoated wheels

Reposted with some more photos (including interior) and lots more information. The price seems very fair now.

Crazy color and 1 of 5 color combo but it's not even photographed. It's also lame that the seats were recovered in solid black. That should be fixed. It has lots of miles, but seems like it's been taken care of. The price seems ok.
