This was the final version of the Z3M manufactured before introduction of the Z4. This little rocket has the S54, 3.2L, 315 HP Engine. This is the high-rev engine, electronically governed at 155 mph. I have always kept the car garaged although I am not the first owner.

- 3.2 L, 315 HP, 251 lb-ft torque S54 engine
- "Stepless" variable valve timing
- 5-speed manual transmission
- M calibration independent suspension
- Near perfect, 50-50 weight distribution

- Limited slip differential
- M gauge cluster
- Electric adjustable seats (driver and passenger)

- Fitted car cover
- M-alloy wheels
- Approximately 3,000 miles since last service
- Thousands invested to keep this car above grade. Can provide all service records upon request.

NOTE: This car does require sub-frame / differential mount welding. This is a very common problem with Z3 M's as the sub-frame was originally designed for a 1.9 4-liter engine. Bids can range from $1000 - $2000. Randy Forbes in Florida is a master at this and, if I were to keep the car, would send it to him.

It's back with 10k more miles but price reduced to $15,500 from $19,750. It sounds like it needs a Randy Forbes kit though.

Estoril over black S54s are suprisingly few and far between. Some of the recent maintenance including newer rear window, tires and brakes are great. The price is fair.
