This 2002 BMW M Roadster has remained registered in California since new and was previously sold on BaT in April 2023. Powered by a 3.2-liter S54 inline-six paired with a five-speed manual transmission, the car is finished in Alpine White over Dark Beige Oregon leather. It has reportedly been modified with a Dinan exhaust system and engine management software. The car is further equipped with a limited-slip differential, a replacement black soft top, Shadow-finished 17″ Style 40 wheels, air conditioning, and a CD stereo linked with a Harman Kardon sound system. Recently acquired by the selling dealer, this M Roadster is now offered with factory literature and accessories, a clean Carfax report, and a California title.
This M Roadster is one of seven finished in Alpine White over Dark Beige Oregon leather for the North American market for the model year. Exterior details include front fender vents, dual exhaust outlets, and a replacement power-operated black convertible soft top along with a beige tonneau cover. Evidence of prior paintwork is noted on the left-rear quarter panel and the bumper covers.
Shadow-finished 17″ Style 40 wheels are mounted with 225/45 front and 255/40 rear Bridgestone tires. The car is equipped with Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and All-Season Traction (AST), and braking is handled by four-wheel ventilated discs. The Carfax report indicates that the brake fluid was flushed in May 2023.
The cabin features Dark Beige Oregon leather upholstery covering the heated sport seats, center console, and door panel inserts. Appointments include air conditioning, a wind deflector, roll hoops, and a CD stereo linked with a Harman Kardon sound system.
The M-branded leather-wrapped steering wheel features tri-color stitching and frames a 170-mph speedometer, a tachometer with an 8k-rpm redline, and gauges for coolant temperature and fuel level. The digital odometer indicates 40k miles.
The 3.2-liter S54B32 inline-six features double-VANOS variable valve timing and a Siemens MSS 54 engine management control system, and it has reportedly been modified with a Dinan exhaust system and engine management software. Per the Carfax report, the fuel filter and the accessory belts were changed in May 2023.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a ZF five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential.
The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists history in California.
