Seller Description

For sale is a 1998 BMW Z3 M Roadster with 81,335 miles. The Roadster is painted in the highly desirable Arctic Silver over beautiful Black and Red leather interior. The red leather against the black leather adds a very nice contrast while not overpowering the look of the interior. Both driver and passenger seats are heated and cooled.  Throughout the car’s life it has been maintained meticulously and has an extensive maintenance record. For the past five years the car has been serviced by an A.S.E certified mechanic. The car has received all up to date service work and replaced any faulty parts. A detailed list of new parts and service history can be given upon request. The body is arrow straight showing no flaws.

The Z3 M Roadster is no ordinary roadster as it shares many parts with the E36 M3. The most notable difference between a Z3 and a Z3 M is that the M uses the drivetrain taken from the E36 M3. That means this light and nimble car packs a serious punch with 240 horsepower with an excellent 5-speed transmission. As opposed to the base Z3, the M Roadster has E36 M3 brakes, a more aggressive front fascia, brake cooling ducts, curved M side-view mirrors, lower rear bumper, and quad-exhaust tips which set the trend for future M vehicles. The car has a factory black hard top that is in excellent condition that can be removed to reveal the soft top very quickly. With the car comes the factory owner’s manual, the factory jack, and the removable hard top stand.

This M Roadster shows that it has been cared for to the highest degree given the extensive maintenance history. This near-flawless Z3 M Roadster would make an excellent weekend car when you’re out on a cruise during a warm summer day.

Good color combo and a (non-color matched) hard top. The AutoCheck shows left side damage from a minor accident in 2004. The headlights are from a 2000+ car, so there may have been front damage too. It looks to be in nice shape for the mileage.
