Seller Description

For sale my 2001 BMW M Roadster (Z3 M) with the rare 3.2L 315hp S54 engine. Only 1,564 convertibles with the S54 engine were made. Total Number in Black Sapphire Metallic over Black Nappa:150. Total Number in Black Sapphire Metallic over Black Nappa with a Black soft top for 2001 Model Year: 79. I’m the 3rd owner. No accidents. Clear title in hand. Currently 52,405 miles and slowly going up as I drive it on the weekends. The car is in very good condition. No mechanical issues whatsoever. Never seen snow. Everything works, the engine and transmission run smooth. Brand new genuine leather seat covers with custom 'M' engraved into headrest. Heated seats. I'm the 3rd owner. Clean car fax, no accidents. The electric top works well, with brand new cloth and window installed in 2017. New tires, brake rotors and pads, and battery at approx. 50,700 miles, 2 years ago. New seat bushings for both seats and saggy glovebox fixed at 51, 000 mi. No issues with the trunk welds as some of these cars may occasionally experience. The clutch is good. New serpentine belts, pulley and tensioner at 51,900 mi. New fuel pump at 52,100 mi. Fresh synthetic oil and transmission fluid just replaced this month, at 52,420. The car is ready for the summer and needs nothing! Some scratches on body on the passenger door (see pictures) and rock chips on the hood. The subwoofer speaker is blown, needs to be replaced or repaired. Slight tear in the console leather, to the right of the radio. Other than that, the car has no issues. Overall, it’s in great condition, I often get compliments while driving around town or when showing up at car meets. I accept reasonable offers, but no low ball offers please, and I don’t need help selling the car. No trades. I have clear title in hand. I will sell to a buyer who will pick up the car from Aurora, IL only, I will not ship.

Back on the market after a few months. The wheels have been refinished and a new soft top put on since it's previous listing. The imola red hard top appears to be gone now. Price up a little to $23,900 from $23,250 which is a decent deal.

It looks like a nice, stock M Roadster. The only modifications I see are the ZHP shift knob and ///M logos on the seats. The glove box is sagging a little, but it looks pretty good overall.
