Seller Description

Embrace the Adventure in the Rare 2000 BMW Z3 M Roadster Convertible
Experience the thrill of the open road like never before with the iconic 2000 BMW Z3 M Roadster. Venture into the picturesque landscapes of the Texas Hill Country while being captivated by the charm of wildflowers and blue bonnets, all from the driver's seat of this extraordinary convertible. This isn't just a car; it's an invitation to carve every twist and turn of the road, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Unmatched Rarity and Allure
Dive into exclusivity with one of only 2,078 M Roadsters crafted in the captivating Estoril Blue hue. Each day, these gems become scarcer, making this opportunity to claim yours even more precious. Don't miss your chance to own a piece of automotive history that exudes both sophistication and performance.

Powerful Performance, Timeless Design
Underneath its sleek exterior lies the beating heart of the Z3 M Roadster: the robust 3.2L S52 straight-6 engine. Boasting 240 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque, this engine inherits the legacy of the legendary E36 M3, delivering unparalleled performance with every shift. It's not just driving; it's a symphony of power and precision.

Crafted with Care, Enhanced with Upgrades
Pampered for 6 years under my ownership, this Z3 M Roadster has received nothing but the utmost care and attention. From routine maintenance to thoughtful enhancements, every decision was made to preserve its engineering brilliance. Notable upgrades include a custom sound system that surpasses the original setup, a brand new air conditioning system, and recent replacements and overhauls to ensure peak performance, even in the Texas heat.

Reinforced for Reliability
Worried about common issues? Fear not. This roadster has undergone professional and purely preventative welding work to reinforce the subframe, ensuring longevity and reliability for years to come. Paired with recently installed Michelin Pilot Sport tires, you can tackle every curve with confidence and control.

Your Journey Starts Here
With only 51,961 miles on the odometer, this Z3 M Roadster is ready to accompany you on countless adventures. Whether you're cruising with the top down or enjoying the immersive sound system, every moment behind the wheel is a testament to craftsmanship and passion.

Full Disclosure, Pure Transparency
In the spirit of full transparency, let's talk about the convertible top on this car. I've noticed some slight fraying around the soft top near the rear window, leading me to believe it's the original top from when the car first hit the road. Additionally, there are a few tiny springs dangling near the folding frame that may seem out of place if you look really closely. However, I want to assure you that I've never encountered any issues with lowering or raising the top—it's always operated smoothly and securely. Consequently, I chose to leave it as is. Because I consistently store the car in a fully enclosed garage away from the elements, I decided to not worry about it anymore. If you can provide similar shelter, the top should last for years to come. And if ever needed, you'll be pleased to know that replacing it won't break the bank. My quote came in at just $500—less than a typical car payment.

Connect with Passion
If you're in search of a classic roadster that seamlessly blends performance, style, and meticulous craftsmanship, look no further. Let's connect, and I'll share more about why this car holds a special place in my heart.

It looks great and seems to be well cared for with a ton of great maintenance. The subframe reinforcement and new cooling system are the highlights. The price seems alright given all the recent work.
