Seller Description

This 1998 BMW Z3 M Roadster is a highly sought after black on black convertible. The vehicle has just under 52,000 miles on it. The car is equipped with fully functioning fuel gauge, temperature gauge, speedometer, odometer, tachometer, amperage meter, oil pressure, clock, air conditioning, leather seats, power windows, power locks, all the original manuals, original tools, and convertible top. New European style headlamps and taillights have been installed and rewired. The vehicle features a customized stereo system ($3,500) with 240 watt x 4 speakers, 10 inch subwoofer, all new wiring, and a large touchscreen that includes Bluetooth & Apple CarPlay.

In the last five months a former BMW mechanic has replaced the head gasket, thermostat, new driver’s side window motor, fuel filter, stainless steel high performance exhaust, spark plugs, and wires. In addition, all fluids have been changed including oil, brake fluid, transmission fluid, differential fluid, coolant, power steering fluid, and hydraulic fluid for the convertible top. In addition, a new piston for the convertible top has been installed.

The Michelin tires appear fairly new, and it is unknown if the clutch is original or a replacement. The seller is meticulous about the care of his vehicle, and it shows with the clean appearance with virtually no evidence of use. The only noticeable flaws are the rear bumper has recently been touched up in one spot, and there are a couple tiny knicks in the hood as to be expected by the age. The driver’s seat is just beginning to show some faint wear.

The vehicle is located in LaGrange, Illinois. The listing price is $29,500.

We've seen this roadster for sale a few times over the years. It has picked up aftermarket headlights and tail lights since we last saw it. It sounds like it's had quite a bit of maitnenacne done as well as a very expensive stereo. The price seems pretty optimistic for the mileage and color combo.
